Founded in 2012, our 35+ 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 catalyst to inspire, impact and enrich the lives of our members, patrons, and the community.
The HGMC recognizes the sociopolitical statement inherent in being an openly gay organization and, as such, representatives of the LGBTQ+ community. In addition to our concerts we represent the LGBTQ+ 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.
