Here's why this Gala event is so important for the GMChorale's artistic programming:

Because beautiful choral music, performed with passion and mastery, is important to you
and to others in our community.
The GMChorale in Concert April 29, 2018
Please join members and friends of the GMChorale on Sunday June 10, when you can support the Chorale's artistic programs while enjoying a festive, relaxed evening among people just like you who love choral music and understand its value in our society.

After the GMChorale's riveting concert on April 29, many people wrote to tell us how this music enriched their lives:

From a subscriber: "The quality of the sound was better than ever before; all the soloists from within the chorale were excellent – real jewels.  Pianist Allan Conway was utterly fabulous!"

From other members of the audience: "Exquisite!"   "Stunning!"  "Thrilling!"  "Impressive!" "We loved hearing and seeing the young singers from Middletown High School singing with the adults." "Incredible talent and collaboration!"
From a composer: "There was a moment in Haydn's Te Deum when Maestro D’Eugenio introduced a forceful choral sonority, then, in the blink of an eye, transformed the sound to a nearly whispered pianissimo rendered perfectly by the chorus. He does not leave a stone unturned ... his interpretive decisions are consistently masterful."
From one of the instrumentalists: "I am very grateful for the opportunity to play!! It is always a pleasure to see (and participate in) the respectful and affectionate relationship Maestro D'Eugenio has with the choir. I truly appreciate the ways that he sets very high standards for all that this ensemble does!"

From another composer: "The GMChorale gave an amazing performance! I’m a permanent fan now. Carissimi’s music is richly artistic and emotionally moving. Thank you."

From a current GMChorale singer: "I am so grateful to be part of the GMChorale where excellence is pursued in a caring way - it is truly an inspirational journey."

From a member of the board of directors of a regional orchestra: "Fantastic performance!  It was really interesting that the pieces progressed 'in time' as the concert went: madrigals, solo harpsichord works by Byrd, then Jephte, Bach, and Haydn. It was very instructive to hear the progression of musical history."

From a former member of the GMChorale: "The concert was a very beautiful event that made us cry, it was so moving and deeply felt."

Comments like these make us confident that the GMChorale's music truly makes a difference in your life and in our community as a whole. We thus ask for your support to sustain the GMChorale's artistic programs now and for the future.

Did you know that ticket sales, grants, and ever-dwindling government support cover only a portion of the cost of staging these concerts? We rely on your generosity and your commitment to live performances of great music right here in our neighborhood to keep the GMChorale "in tune" season after season.
