Open Auditions – Join Us!

Do you like to sing?  Do you know someone who likes to sing?  Would you like to make some great new friends, have fun, and feel the thrill and satisfaction of performing beautiful music in four-part harmony for our audiences all over New Hampshire?  If so, look no further!

NHGMC holds Open Auditions twice per year, in early September and early January, at the first three rehearsals of our Winter or Spring concert series. We seek singers who are men over the age of 18, who are gay, straight (gay-friendly), or adults who identify as male.

The next chances to audition with our Chorus are:

  • Tuesday, January 2, 2018, 6:30 pm
  • Tuesday, January 9, 2018, 6:30 pm
  • Tuesday, January 16, 2018, 6:30 pm

Auditions are held at the First Congregational Church, 508 Union Street, Manchester. Rehearsal for our 20th Anniversary Spring Concert Series (in May, 2018) will immediately follow from 7:00 to 9:30 pm.

Parking and church entrance: Ample free parking is available in the parking lot at the corner of Amherst Street and Union Street. The lot is surrounded by a black steel-pipe fence. The entrance to the lot is on Union Street. Walk across Amherst Street and come to the church’s side entrance.

Auditions are quick, private, and painless. You needn’t have any material nor music prepared. It is an exercise in pitch matching to place your voice in the proper section. The ability to read music is helpful, but it is not a requirement for joining. Rehearsals repeat every Tuesday through our concert series. NHGMC asks every member for $50 seasonal membership dues. Members are also asked to purchase a tuxedo to wear at most concert performances.

Add your voice to ours. Join the fun and camaraderie. If you don’t sing, at any time you can join our support staff or assist our Board of Directors. Contact us!
