Dear Chorus Members, Thank you for allowing me the privilege to see the incredible performance of "Brave Souls and Dreamers." While I have seen a number of TGMC concerts, this one was amazing and stands in a class by itself. I can only imagine the work and effort that all of you put into that performance and I want you to know how much it was appreciated by both me and my husband. When my little brother, Bryce Reynolds, sent me the invitation (we live in Austin, Texas), I had no idea what to expect. Towards the end of the first half I turned to look at my husband to find tears streaming down his face. At intermission, I saw that most everyone in the audience was having to search for their kleenex. Even more importantly, both my husband and I felt a renewed committment to work in endeavors in our community to bring about peace. Thank you for bringing a message of joy, sorrow, and hope in troubled times to your listeners with the gift of your beautiful voices. "Brave Souls and Dreamers" is a magnificent work that needs to be heard by every American. I'm just glad I was there for what turned out to be an experience I will not forget. Lonni Milner Austin, Texas

We attended the "Brave Souls and Dreamers" concert in June, 2009, and my family was impressed with the Triangle Gay Men's Chorus on many levels. Their a Capella opening piece was a marvelous piece of music and acoustical engineering - the venue created an almost-perfect unison sound and the basses, in particular, simply resounded. The cantata was inspiring. We commented to each other about the artistic interpretation in a precise performance that spoke volumes about the musical leadership and conductor's skill. The chorus sang as a well-trained unit yet never lost the artistic and musical individuality that makes for listening pleasure. The Sunday afternoon large crowd responded with a heartfelt standing ovation at intermission and acknowledged the incredible work these men put into their performance. Fabulous performance; amazing chorus. What a wonderful afternoon!
