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 late August/early September and late December/ early January) before the beginning of our rehearsals for 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, August 28, 2018, 6:30 to 8:00 pm (auditions only – no rehearsal)
- Tuesday, September 4, 2018, 6:30 to 7:00 pm (rehearsal follows at 7:00)
Auditions are held at the First Congregational Church, 508 Union Street, Manchester. August 28 is an auditions night only. There is no rehearsal on August 28. The first rehearsal for our 2018 Holiday Concert Series, Don We Now Our Gay Apparel, immediately follows the auditions on September 4 — from 7:00 to 9:30 pm. New singers are asked stay for rehearsal.
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 beneath the WELCOME sign.
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!
