New Jersey Gay Men's Chorus
The New Jersey Gay Men’s Chorus (NJGMC) is a volunteer chorus drawing from communities in New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania.
During our 20 year history, the NJGMC has presented an annual concert series consisting of two or three concert weekends, as well as several run-outs and other performances as part of our commitment to community involvement and outreach. We have appeared at public displays of the AIDS Memorial Quilt (sponsored by the New Jersey Names Project), the New Jersey Gay and Lesbian Pride Parade and Rally in Asbury Park, the GSA Forum sponsored by GLSEN, the Yom HaShoah commemoration at the Jewish Community Center in Edison and the Kristallnacht commemoration at the New Jersey State House in Trenton. In February of 2005, we had the thrilling experience of performing “Sing for the Cure,” a musical benefit for breast cancer education, at Carnegie Hall.
The NJGMC is the only New Jersey member of the roughly 200-member international Gay and Lesbian Association of Choruses (GALA Choruses), a network of GLBT and GLBT-allied choruses from all over the world that sponsors ongoing networking opportunities as well as conferences and festivals for its members. We have been the Garden State ambassadors at events in Tampa, Denver, Kansas City, Montreal and the GALA Choruses Festival 2008 in Miami, where our performance received rave reviews and three standing ovations.
