The Harrisburg Gay Men’s Chorus is coming to Trinity UCC, 30 West North Street, Waynesboro PA on June 18th at 3pm.
The Harrisburg Gay Men’s Chorus was founded in 1987 and celebrates the LGBT experience in the central Pennsylvania region and beyond, delighting and entertaining audiences with fun, vibrant and gay-positive musical programs. It is comprised of men from diverse paths and origins, uniting in spirit with a common love of music to build bridges of understanding in communities through music and public outreach efforts. They challenge themselves to grow in integrity, harmony and appreciation of their individual gifts of music, while creating experiences that entertain, empower and enlighten all those that hear their song.
The chorus has traveled from one end of the country to the other to perform…from Carnegie Hall in New York, NY to the Civic Auditorium in San Jose, CA…with many locations in between. In September 1999, the HGMC became a resident choral company of the Whitaker Center in Harrisburg, and has hosted and performed with several nationally acclaimed performers such as opera soprano Marilyn Horne, jazz singer, song writer, actress Ann Hampton Callaway and singer, songwriter Judy Collins.
They are proud to be a member of The Gay and Lesbian Association of Choruses, an international association of over 170 LGBT choruses that aspire to help change the world through song.
Their vision, mission and values statements include:
- making a world where everyone can sing their own song
- making the arts accessible to all, and to present entertaining and enlightening musical programs that will enrich the community through acceptance and understanding of diversity.
- Endeavoring to create and maintain an organization that values community, equality, fellowship, and stewardship.
