As you know, we haven’t been able to sing for you since December 2019. No one misses that more than the members of the Chorus, and nothing helps more than the encouraging notes, phone calls, emails, and yes, donations, to the Chorus. We are grateful for your support and love. We owe the legacy of 35 years to YOU – our faithful friends.
This year, we were supposed to be presenting concerts for our 35th season of providing great music, entertaining you at Bingomania, and most of all, being a positive force in the community. Our virtual performances have been well-received, and we plan to make more, but we long to be able to sing again in front of you. For that wonderful moment to happen, when we’re able finally to sing for you in person, we’re going to need to get to our 36th year…and we’re going to need your help to do that. So it is to you that we come once more.
Please consider making a contribution to the CTGMC on Giving Tuesday, December 1, 2020, so that we can continue to sing for you for another 35 years.
Our legacy, and our future, depends on you.
Ken Sawicki President, Connecticut Gay Men’s Chorus
Four of our singers have created this incredible tribute. We're very proud to share their message.
"To the black community, we love you. We wanted to use our talent and our voices to keep the message of the protests alive and to remind everyone of the ones we've lost and the reason we continue to march. Say their names." - The Connecticut Gay Men's Chorus
Featuring (L-R): James Hampton, Aaron Scott, Marcus Tart, and Cecil Carter

Connecticut Gay Men's Chorus - 35 Years of Fabulous
Connecticut Gay Men's Chorus - No Turnin' Back!
Founded in 1986,
the Connecticut Gay Men’s Chorus was the first organization of its kind in Connecticut and is a proud to be a part of LGBT history.
The chorus continues to inspire other arts-based community organizations around New England. Under the leadership of Artistic Director Greg McMahan, the CTGMC is proud to maintain its high level of performance standards while maintaining its signature blend of humor and personality.
The CTGMC performs at, as well as supports, an ever-increasing number of community outreach organizations to raise funds and awareness of a variety of social and LGBT programs.
We aim to portray the very best of the gay community in an authentic way. And, to further our mission of building bridges between the gay community and the community at large, we now welcome men of all orientations to join us in song and fellowship.
Thanks to our successful monthly fundraiser Bingomania and our family of donors and sponsors, we are not only committed to keeping our ticket prices affordable, but we are able to set aside 10% of our tickets to offer to LGBT youth, AIDS outreach, and other social outreach programs at no cost.
The CTGMC is unique in that we are both a choral arts organization and a social change agent.
For almost 35 years, the Connecticut Gay Men’s Chorus is proud to have been a standard bearer for a powerful mix of performance, community activism, empowerment and inclusiveness, establishing it as an icon among Connecticut’s LGBTQ organizations.
“The enthusiasm, joy, body language and songs’ messages filled the auditorium and was contagious for everyone. Thank you, thank you— never stop performing!”
"Once again these hard working men put together a terrific concert. Their performance is always first rate and yesterday was not any different. I recognize so many of these handsome faces; this is my 27th year. Well done, gentlemen."
“Fantastic Show!!!! The guys did an incredible job and I can’t wait for the next show!”
“What a great show! We loved it. Very talented group with perfect harmonies.”
