As I am a new member to this group my heart has been touched by the songs we sing. But the "Bravesouls and Dreamers" concert has really touched my heart. As I listen to the songs and sing the words it speaks to me about peace and how people are fighting for that, not just in the GLBT community, but everywhere. It brings tears to my eyes and gives me confidence that peace will come. My prayer for everyone who comes to our concert is that they will be filled with joy and that our songs will bring them comfort and peace and tears of happiness. That they will see that meaning behind the songs. We are not just singers, we are messengers, and we hope the message will bring peace. I am proud to be a part of this experience. God bless you all.

December 13, 2008, Raleigh, NC: The sound of choristers gently wafted above us from the rear of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall — a warm welcome on a cold wintry night. The Triangle Gay Men’s Chorus, directed by John-Phillip Mullinax, presented a program of seasonal anthems, spirituals and classics, the first concert of the 2008-09 A Peaceable Season. With a focus on eliminating communication barriers, eyes on the conductor and out of the printed music,the widely-spaced arrangement of the chorus coupled with immaculate attention to detail, this chorus delivered their message with aplomb.The Chorus was brilliant. In the end, TGMC can chalk this up as a success! And after many musical accomplishments, Mullinax, a native North Carolinian who found his way back home, has the stuff to develop something wonderful. I’m looking forward to watching this group grow under his artistic direction
