So dig out your zoot suits and bobby socks and get ready to boogie! Yes, We Got That Swing! is a musical program like none you've ever experienced with our chorus. This second historic 15th anniversary Crystal Jubilee concert tour rolls out the wonderful all-American sound of swing, all the rage in the early/mid 20th century. Feel like jitterbugging? No problem! Our dreamy swingeroo crooners will blow those bobby socks off with great harmonies "eight to the bar" in boogie-woogie rhythm. We feature your favorite swing standards as well as some swing show tunes and patriotic medleys. "It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing." This is one concert you won't want to miss!

NHGMC helps launch anti-bullying program
NHGMC is collaborating with the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles and Concord's Capitol Center for the Arts, developing a program for a new national anti-bullying production called, "It Gets Better Live!" The two choruses and the Capitol Center are exploring ways to bring the premier performances to New Hampshire in 2013, late winter or early spring. Once developed, the "It Gets Better Live" project will be a traveling, multimedia show featuring a partnership between GMCLA and local musical groups to explore what "better" means for LGBT youth through stories, songs, and multimedia. The project will be a week-long residency. Check this web site for updates.
