I've enjoyed a number of TGMC concerts. They are always lively and varied. The singers are talented and well-blended. Watching them makes it clear that they believe in the importance of their mission and are carrying it out while giving many people a wonderful musical experience.

A friend invited me to TGMC's holiday concert in December of 2010.
Not knowing quite what to expect, I was extremely impressed with hteir professionalism, musicality, showmanship and command of the music.
You could sense that they hade the audience "right inthe palms of thier hands" and could hear a pin drop at many points during the concert, to use two overused expressions. Inthis case, however, I cna think of no better way to describe they way they held their audience's collective . rapt attention.
At times, their sound was breathtaking.

Kudos to TGMC and their Director for the work they do and the beautiful results they achieve!

The Triangle Gay Men's Chorus is an under-appreciated musical treasure. It's sound shines above that of many community choruses.

In their superb performances the TGMC presents a positive image of the gay community that helps build a more accepting, tolerant society.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the contacts TGMC ahs made throughout the Raleigh-Durham area.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

increase their publicity so that they could reach more people.

This group is a great representative to the local community of the talent present in the LGBT community. Not only are they excellent performers, but they serve as a great example to others of why hatred, bigotry, and the exclusion of equal rights for LGBT persons are so ungrounded in actual facts and experience. I'm proud to have this group in my hometown!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

communications with them and performances.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I do not believe this organization needs me to tell it what to do!

The TGMC is one of the most artistic singing groups in North Carolina. Their sound is like no other and with the direction of Phil Mullinax, it's just amazing how professional they sound especially considering that this is a community chorus. Most of what they sing is off book and they way that they draw the audience in is nothing short of amazing. Everyone should take time out of their schedules to hear one of their concerts.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

many concerts that they have done over the years. I try not to miss any concerts. They are truely remarkable

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

NOTHING!!!

I have been a supporter of the Triangle Gay Men's Chorus for many years and have been impressed by their growing professionalism in their performances. It is a small group of select singers who are very serious about their work and even have commissioned original works for their performances.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Attending concerts

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Include a little more light music. It's gotten too serious, and that has hurt attendance.
