Thank you NH Fisher Cats and everybody for a fun night out at the ballgame!

“Oh say can you see…”  Many thanks to the New Hampshire Fisher Cats baseball organization for hosting us Tuesday, June 17, as our men belted out another superb and powerful rendition of the Star Spangled Banner to open the game. Thanks also to our singing members and all who came out to see us and the Fisher Cats. It was our 5th annual appearance — and as always, an all-out fun and very enjoyable evening. See you in 2015!

What a show!

From the bottom of our hearts, our entire NHGMC family says THANK YOU to everyone who came to see our spectacular Spring 2014 concert series, It’s Showtime! Music from Stage & Screen. Because of you, our great audiences in Manchester, Portsmouth, Concord, and Nashua — your wild cheers and ovations and support — It’s Showtime! now belongs to the ages as a big success and one the best productions in our 16-year history. You energized us. Thank you!

A Rose in Winter by any other name … How sweet it was!

Thank you fans, friends, members, support staff, concert venues, and everyone who helped make our Winter 2013 concert series, A Rose in Winter, such a smashing success! Special words of appreciation for our popular, star guest soloist, Soprano Sarah Chadwick. “Just remember in the winter far beneath the bitter snow, lies the seed that with the sun’s love, in the spring becomes the rose…”

Thanks for the 15th anniversary Crystal Jubilee memories

We are now in our 17th year, but we still have fond memories of our 15th Crystal Jubilee anniversary.  Our heartfelt thanks go out those who helped make our 15th anniversary year a great success, including our two concert series, Colors of Winter and We Got That Swing! We also thank Governor John Lynch, Governor Maggie Hassan, and the mayors of Nashua, Concord, Portsmouth, and Manchester, for your proclamations and well-wishes. And none of us will ever forget those powerfully sentimental, loving moments at our December 9, 2012, Manchester concert where past members joined their chorus brethren on stage to sing Brothers Forever — as well as at our May 19, 2013, Manchester concert when past members joined us to sing Turn Around, Look at Me. Be sure to read about our Chorus history:  New Hampshire Gay Men’s Chorus – The Untold Story of a Granite State Treasure. It’s a great read!
