OUR HISTORY:

Founded in 2012, the 60+ voice ensemble is celebrated for our musicianship, creative programming and
community outreach. Under the leadership of Interim Artistic Director, Christopher Clark and Executive Director, Robert Reader, the HGMC sings a wide range of music as a catalyst for enriching and educating both participants and audiences by demonstrating to individuals the many ways that
beautiful music positively impacts our world.

 

The HGMC recognizes the sociopolitical statement inherent in being an openly gay organization and, as such, representatives of the LGBT community. In addition to our concerts we represent the LGBT community through partnerships with other gay and gay-affirming organizations, outreach within our community and beyond, and participation and performances at pride events, cultural celebrations, civic programs, sporting events, and other special occasions.

 

In 2019 alone the HGMC has participated in the below events.
