Well, yes, this IS a request for money. But you'd be hard-pressed to find a better place to make a donation. The Golden Gate Men's Chorus is one of the finest community men's choruses in America --- and now, it's time to step up the game and make that "...one of the finest men's choruses in the world".
That's right: we're on our way to a choral festival/competition in Riga, Latvia in 2014, to be followed by a tour of eastern Europe that will not only let the world know about us, but allow us to bring home some of the world's finest music, for you, our supporters.
So what's my story with GGMC? I feel like I've finally found that musical home I've been looking for, for years --- as a singer, as a composer/arranger, and even as a person. This group performs outstanding music with outstanding quality, allowing singers like me to really shine and be at their best. They have performed some of my own compositions and arrangements, and done a great job with them.
And.....they've cared for me and kept the faith. When my career took me to Denver, with no certainy that I'd ever make it back, this group believed in me enough to keep me on the roster as being on leave, with the firm certainty that I'd find my way back, somehow. And sure enough....!
This warmth and dedication to each other and to our artistry shines forth in every performance. Please help us share this with the world. This is my personal invitation to you to contribute in whatever amount you can afford (a minimum $25 donation is suggested), to get us "Rollin' On, to Riga"! Thank you.
All the best,
