    Our holiday concert features the Impulse Handbell Ensemble, a professional youth handbell ensemble from Princeton NJ, as well as brass, percussion and organ. Held at the Lutheran Church of the Holy Communion.
  • March 17-19, 2016 – “Lights, Camera, Sing!”
    Featuring music made famous on the silver screen. Held at the Prince Theater.

    Celebrates LGBT families in all their various forms. The first half will be a performance of “Alexander’s House,” a one-act choral staged musical about a man who dies and leaves his summer home to his estranged son instead of his partner. The second half features a new work commissioned by PGMC, sharing our stories and experiences. Held at the Prince Theater.
  • Plus, we have additional fundraisers (e.g. Fall Ball-Oct. 17, 2015 and the Bachelor Auction-Feb. 2016), and appearances in the suburbs and at area schools as part of our outreach program.
