NHGMC’s third decade begins. Thank you for a wonderful 20th Anniversary year celebration!

Our 20th Anniversary year has slipped into history. But on July 1, 2018, NHGMC’s third decade began! What a year of incredible celebrations with our friends and fans it has been. And our loyal corporate sponsor, TD Bank, has been there every step of the way. We are stronger and more popular than ever. The best is yet to come. 

Our 20th Anniversary concerts slip into history. Thank you for making them a smashing success!

Thanks to our fabulous guest choral groups, the Unitarian Universalist of Manchester Church Choir, Women Singing Out, and our brothers of the Maine Gay Men’s Chorus (MGMC).  See our Upcoming Performances page for many of the special performances we’re giving in June and beyond.

NHGMC sings for Governor Sununu and Exec Council in a first historic, proud performance inside the New Hampshire Capitol!

On Wednesday, March 21, NHGMC sang several songs for Governor Chris Sununu and his Executive Council inside the New Hampshire State Capitol! Governor Sununu, in commemoration of NHGMC’s 20th Anniversary, personally extended the invitation to the Chorus. A very historic, proud moment for our members, it’s the first time the Chorus has performed inside the Capitol — and Governor Sununu is the first New Hampshire Governor to extend the invitation to sing for our state government. It marks an important milestone in our history, given that this performance would have been unthinkable in NHGMC’s early years — or even as recently as 10 years ago — when acceptance of LGBT people in New Hampshire was scarce. To open the Council session, NHGMC performed three songs — the official state song, Old New Hampshire, as well as I Sing Out and Let the River Run.  Following the televised performance, the Governor read, and then presented Artistic Director Luc Andre Roberge with, a 20th Anniversary Commendation signed by the Governor and the five Council members. We thank Governor Sununu, the Council, and his staff for their warm welcome, hospitality, and recognition of our 20th Anniversary.

Old New Hampshire, Old New Hampshire
Old New Hampshire Grand and Great
We will sing of Old New Hampshire,
Of the dear old Granite State!

Thank you, Governor Sununu and Council, for your Commendation honoring NHGMC on its 20th Anniversary

His Excellency, New Hampshire Governor Christopher T. Sununu, has bestowed upon NHGMC a Governor’s Commendation, honoring the New Hampshire Gay Men’s Chorus on the occasion of our 20th Anniversary and for “bringing the joy of music to the citizens of New Hampshire in communities across the state.”

NHGMC, for the first time in its history, sings the National Anthem at Fenway Park for Boston Red Sox!

It was a night to remember — our Chorus, for the first time in its history, belting out the National Anthem at Fenway Park on June 9 to open the Boston Pride Night baseball game against the Detroit Tigers. And the Sox came from behind to win!  An exciting new milestone for NHGMC as well as a dream come true. Thanks to the Red Sox organization for inviting us. Thanks to our friends and fans for your support and all the compliments.

NHGMC featured on NH Chronicle – Channel 9 WMUR-TV

On December 12, 2017, WMUR-TV’s award-winning “New Hampshire Chronicle” re-aired a delightful feature story on the NH Gay Men’s Chorus and our 2016 holiday concert series, “Holiday Music to Warm the Heart.”  The Chronicle TV crew had interviewed many members and a few of our performances. WMUR’s description of the story:  “Singing out love and holiday cheer … For 19 years The New Hampshire Gay Men’s Chorus has been sharing their voices, music, and message of acceptance and love with the people of New Hampshire.” The story originally aired on December 16, 2016.

 

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, 2016, 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 19-year history have we experienced anything quite like it. Enjoy.
