GNHCC is a great organization, and what makes it great is it's dedicated Artistic Director, singers and Board Members who keep evolving the organization to be a continuously creative choral music force within the community.

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

Ways to make it better...

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

help get involved, like I've already done, with being a Board Member. :)

GNHCC is a wonderfully inclusive community chorus, open to all members of the community, regardless of singing ability! When I wanted to get back into singing, I searched online for local choruses. Many of them were auditioned-- I was very nervous at the thought of having to sight-read music in front of an audience! Not only that, these choruses seemed rather "stuffy" as they were singing more traditional choral songs and arrangements. The GNHCC welcomed me during my very first practice with open arms, no auditions and they instilled confidence in my ability to sing with them by welcoming me back again and again. Their music is sometimes traditional, but mostly current, international, and eclectic, featuring composers from all walks of life. It's inspiring to be a part of this chorus and I look forward to our practices together every week!

The Great!

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

how I live my life with more joy and greater insights into myself and the world around me.

Ways to make it better...

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

create a movie night to showcase what other choruses around the world are doing.
