EGMC November Board Update

Greetings Friends and Donors,

Warmest Fall greetings from the Eugene Gay Men’s Chorus! We’re writing to extend our deepest thanks for your support in helping establish EGMC and want to provide you with some exciting updates.

Coming Out for the Holidays, our inaugural concert, will be December 1, 2018 at 7:00 PM at Trinity United Methodist Church in Eugene. We’ll serenade you with songs from many holiday traditions and welcome you in with holiday cheer. Tickets are available online or at the door. Prices are general admission at $15 and seniors/students at $10, we’re excited to have you join us!

The Fall season of rehearsals has brought together twenty singers, diligently practicing and building an important community voice. We’re thrilled to be under the leadership of our Artistic Director, Evan Miles, a recent Master’s graduate in Choral Conducting from the University of Oregon. Evan was also recently featured as a conductor of the Portland Gay Men’s Chorus during their historic trip to China this past summer. We’re so thankful to have him with us!

We’re working on methodically building out a board and our organization is on the cusp of 501c3 status. Moreover, joining Gay Men’s Choruses from around the country and globe, we became a GALA Chorus Member this Fall, and we’re excited to continue to partner with you and our community.

Thank you so much for your support and continued partnership, every dollar you have given and will give is making a real impact in establishing and sustaining the chorus, keep partnering and stay tuned!

Warmest Regards,
– EGMC Board

Robert Blake, Secretary
Dan Currier, President
Richard Daniels, Treasurer

EGMC Announces Premier Holiday Concert ‘Coming Out for Christmas’

Have you ever wondered if Eugene has a Gay Men’s Chorus? Mark your calendars, because Eugene’s first ever Gay Men’s Chorus has finally formed and we’re Coming Out for the Holidays in our debut concert performance! Save the date of December 1st at 7:00pm, in the sanctuary of Trinity United Methodist Church at 440 Maxwell Road in Eugene. We’ll serenade you with songs from many holiday traditions and welcome you in with holiday cheer.

The chorus came together last spring at an open house promoted to gauge an interest among singers in the gay community. Rehearsals commenced early in the summer and the chorus was asked to perform at a concert in Eugene with the mixed choir, Influence which is an ensemble group of Salem’s Confluence choir. Later this summer, the chorus sang to enthusiastic crowds at this year’s Pride Celebration at Alton Baker park in August.

Evan Miles, the Artistic Director of EGMC, received his Master’s degree in Choral Conducting from the University of Oregon and was recently featured as a conductor of the Portland Gay Men’s Chorus during their historic trip to China this past summer.

Tickets are available in advance from choristers or at the door. Prices are general admission at $15 and student at $10. Payment can be cash, check or Visa or Mastercard. Refreshments will be served.
