Dear Friends of the PGMC,
In light of the current state of affairs with the COVID-19 restrictions and in following state, regional, and federal guidelines, the Providence Gay Men’s Chorus (PGMC) regrets to announce that we have suspended all choral activities for the remainder of our season. This means that we have cancelled our Are We There Yet? concerts which were scheduled for June.
This is a devastating loss to the PGMC. As a small non-profit chorus, we depend on our ticket sales for the majority of our income. Patrons with the ability to turn what would have been their ticket purchase into a tax-deductible donation will provide significant help in off-setting the operational losses of the PGMC. We appreciate your consideration of this option. You can make your online donation on this website or you can mail a donation to the postal address at the bottom of the page.
The decision to cancel a performance is never taken lightly. Blood, sweat and tears are invested in preparing, rehearsing, and promoting our performances. The diligent work of our artistic team, board of directors and administrative staff should be recognized while this situation has been evolving. It’s also important to recognize the hard work and dedication of our all-volunteer singing members who started preparing for this concert back in the middle of January.
We look forward to when we are (hopefully) able to reconvene and start rehearsing for our holiday 2020 concerts.
Thank you for your continued support of the PGMC. We need you and we thank you for understanding this difficult situation. Please follow us on social media and here on our website for additional information regarding our musical future.
Are We There Yet?
— CANCELLED —
Looking for some unique fun to start your summer? Come along on a road trip with the PGMC and discover the coolest off the beaten path places along the way in our “Are We There Yet?” concerts. Fueled by our excitement for our upcoming journey to Minneapolis in July 2020 for our performance at GALA Festival, we are getting behind the wheel and letting the horizon unfurl before us. Our road will help you “get your kicks on Route 66” all the way from New York to San Francisco. After all, at their heart, road trips are about escaping restrictions and letting your hair down and just relaxing. So put aside your worries about the price of gas and where you’re going to grab a bite to eat, and fill up your tank with the music that only the PGMC can provide.
As an added treat, we are thrilled to announce that our spring concerts will now be held at The Gamm Theatre in Warwick, RI. Easy to find and plenty of parking. June 5-7, 2020. We look forward to seeing you there!
