NHGMC makes history performing on live, national television for Presidential candidates rally

It ranks as one of the most wonderful moments in the history of NHGMC. On February 5, our men belted out the national anthem and God Bless America on live, national television  — broadcast on C-SPAN from the Verizon Arena at the Democratic Party’s McIntyre-Shaheen 100 Club Celebration, featuring speeches by candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, as well as Governors Hassan and Lynch, Senator Shaheen, and other dignitaries. Thank you NHDP for the invitation to sing at your event.  Thanks also to all in attendance and all who watched on television. We were so touched by your applause, praises, and kind words. Watch our guys in this C-SPAN video perform at this event.  Never in our 18-year history have we experienced anything quite like it. Enjoy.

Thank you for making A New December a great success!

Our 2015 holiday concert series, A New December, is now history. What a concert!  We thank our wonderful, cheering audiences in Nashua, Portsmouth, Concord, and Manchester — and everybody who made A New December such a great success. And didn’t you love those beautiful raffle quilts?  Your enthusiastic support always energizes us. We also thank our audience at the Meetinghouse at Riverfront assisted living center, the parishioners of the First Congregational Church of  Manchester, the Greater Concord Interfaith Council, and all our concert venues.  We wish you and yours a happy, prosperous new year.  We want to see you again this Spring, when our guys dazzle you at our 18th annual Spring concert series, Dudes and Divas!  Get updates at our Upcoming Performances page. 

NHGMC sings at World AIDS Day interfaith service in Concord

Thank you Temple Beth Jacob of Concord, and the Concord Interfaith Council, for allowing  NHGMC to participate in, and sing several inspirational songs, at your annual World AIDS Day Interfaith Service on Monday, November 30.  It was a lovely service, and we look forward to singing again at your 2016 service.

NHGMC still going strong in its 18th year

On July 1, 2015, NHGMC began its 18th fiscal year. In 1998, the year our unique not-for-profit chorus was established, who would have thought we’d still be around 18 years later, still giving the gift of beautiful music to the people of New Hampshire? The world has changed dramatically in 18 years, and we are humbled and grateful that we and our music now are loved, accepted, and welcomed everywhere in New Hampshire. Long gone are the days when we wore incognito dark glasses at performances or ducked the camera’s lens.  Eighteen years later, we sing with pride, with our eyes wide open. And we look forward to performing more great shows for you, our fabulous fans and friends. Thank you.

Decades concert was a big hit!  Thank you friends and fans

Some are calling it our best show ever — our Spring 2015 concert series, DECADES.  All of us at NHGMC say thank you to our great concert audiences — especially the wildly cheering, packed crowd in Manchester! — to our lovely audiences at Havenwood and Hunt Community assisted living centers, and to everyone who supported us in making Decades such a great success. It was our pleasure (and so much fun) to entertain you. A special thanks goes out to our wonderful sponsor, TD Bank, for their continued support and for their delightful reception. Check out our great Decades concert photo album!

NHGMC gives community-outreach concerts to assisted living centers in Concord and Nashua

As NHGMC is also a community-service organization, we were delighted to perform two complimentary outreach concerts for the residents of two New Hampshire assisted living centers.  On Tuesday, May 5, we performed in Concord for the residents of Havenwood Heritage Heights assisted living center.  On Tuesday, May 12, we performed in Nashua for the residents of the Hunt Community assisted living center.  Thank you Havenwood and Hunt. We were honored that you invited us to sing for the lovely ladies and gentlemen of your communities. We’ll be back!
