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.

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!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the genuine friendship offered by the members and the professional impression they made in concert.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

wonderfully helpful and downright nice.

The season finale was my first performance by TGMC but it won't be the last. Thank you for a multi-goosebump experience! Your presentation was seamless and your sound- crisp, clean and perfectly lovely! -Tara Lynn WCPE Community Liaison

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

their season finale, a performance of BraveSouls & Dreamers

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

sing MORE of the sacred classical sounding pieces than choral-type works. TGCM surpasses many local organizations in their delivery of such works!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their seriously seamless sound! It's obvious that much practice went into creating that experience.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

All members (including the conductor) were available for handshakes, conversation, critiques, and photos after the performance. They were very hospitable to the audience members as they were leaving

Ways to make it better...

we could order libations and sit in comfortable chairs instead of pews... but that's hardly something to complain about for the quality of sound we have in the locations they chose for their performance!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

One thing I'd also say is that...
