Start your holidays off right with the men of Connecticut Gay Men’s Chorus, when we bring our Bright Shiny Balls to Old Saybrook for two performances!
Celebrating 35 years of entertaining Connecticut audiences, the CTGMC continues to provide the "alternative" holiday experience to Nutmeggers from all across the state.
This post-pandemic holiday celebration features dynamic musical selections, ranging from glorious new takes on traditional Christmas favorites to infamously outrageous fun. Our singers are bursting at the seams to bring back the seasonal sass that marks the start of Connecticut's holiday festivities.
Our next BingoMania will be held Saturday, December 18. For your safety and ours, we will continue to follow the New Haven Indoor Masking Protocols.

We'll be holding auditions for our May and June 2022 performances of The British Are Coming! on Tuesday, January 4 and Tuesday, January 11 beginning at 7:30 pm at our rehearsal space in New Haven.
We welcome male singers over age 18 and of all orientations. Previous choral experience is preferred but not necessary—all we ask is your commitment to attend Tuesday rehearsals and that you enjoy the experience, camaraderie, and musicianship. Please prepare a song that showcases your talent; a pianist will be provided.

Connecticut Gay Men's Chorus - No Turnin' Back!
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 over 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.
