A Message from our Board Chairman Thanks As they say, behind every strong man there is a strong woman; well, not with me. I have a pack of strong men! I could not have made it through this past year without the support of many individuals. Special thanks go out to Austin Propst, who stepped up and helped us out as an accompanist and arranger. Many, many thanks go out to Paul Musick for his tech skills, his neverending supply of goodies, being a sounding board and all the many, many things he does behind the scenes. Thanks to my BFF, Anthony Moore. He’s always there to listen, laugh, cry with, and to be there in every way possible. Thank you Alex Kiger for being a source of wisdom and strength these past few weeks. Jim Settle, my Vice Chair, for being the rock and a source of strength and inspiration. Mario, what can I say; you have risen to the challenge. You took over the reins and became our director and led us to an awesome concert! I am so grateful for the board members of TPMC. They do a thankless job: while we are on stage getting applause, they are tirelessly working in the lobby setting up refreshments, cleaning up and doing so many things behind the scenes that no one is aware of. TPMC could not be the organization it is without our volunteer board members who tirelessly work on grants, fundraising, and marketing. THANK YOU! Lastly, thank you David B. for being there and taking care of the day-to-day things I just don’t have time to do sometimes. Thank you for bringing the best out in me and just loving me. Sing or Volunteer? TPMC is looking for and will be accepting new members for the chorus and the board. TPMC is not your average singing group. It is a group that will change your life. If you cannot sing or don’t have the time to commit, we have a special place for you on our board. We need energetic and enthusiastic people; come join us! If you are interested in volunteering, being on the board, or becoming a singing member, please contact us at joinus@ Support! I am grateful for all the support the community has shown us this past year and over the past 14 years! Your support has helped us to become and to be the organization we are today! This is your organization; you helped to build it! TPMC will be having a fundraiser in October called Dining with TPMC; please come out and support us! This will be a night of food, fun and entertainment! Found! After an exhausting search, TPMC is proud to announce we have found our new artistic director, William Southerland. We are proud and excited to have William on board. William will be stepping into his role July 1, 2013.

History of the Triad Pride Men’s Chorus

In late 1998, three men from Greensboro who had been driving to the Triangle area every week to sing with the nearest gay men’s chorus decided to take a chance. Hoping that there would be enough interest in and support for a gay men’s chorus in the Triad, they advertised for singers. Over twenty men showed up in January 1999 from Greensboro, Winston-Salem, High Point, and other area towns—all eager to join together in pride and in song. In June of that year the Triad Pride Men’s Chorus held its first concert. Membership is open to gay and gay-affirming male singers. TPMC is a member of The Gay and Lesbian Association of Choruses (“GALA Choruses”) which is an international association of LGBT choruses founded in 1982. TPMC continues to grow, both musically and organizationally, enabling us to expand our mission to perform choral music to entertain, enlighten, and enrich, while promoting equality and social justice for all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity--fostering pride, understanding, and acceptance. We remain so grateful to all our audience members, donors, sponsors, volunteers, staff, and singers for raising us up to new heights, ensuring our success.

M A R I O C A P A N O - I N T E R I M ARTISTIC DIRECTOR Mario Capano has served as pianist with the Triad Pride Men’s Chorus since the spring of 2000 and was appointed Assistant Conductor in 2004. He also directs NoteWorthy, the small vocal ensemble comprised of members of TPMC. He has performed extensively with both groups locally as well as in GALA choral festivals in Cincinnati, Montreal, Kansas City, Denver, Miami, and Columbus (Ohio). Mario holds music degrees from Carnegie Mellon and Yale. He has studied at the American Conservatory in Fontainebleau, France, and at the famous Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria. He began his career as a vocal coach and collaborative pianist at Carnegie Mellon and Chatham College in Pittsburgh, where he also did concerts and radio broadcasts with Dear Friends, ensemble-in-residence at the University of Pittsburgh. With the Robert Page Festival Singers he has concertized in Russia, Finland, Spain, France, Germany, and Switzerland. In 2003 he was invited to perform chamber music at Merkin Concert Hall in New York City. In addition, he has completed several choral arrangements for men’s voices and has composed “Everyday People,” an anthem to equality that was commissioned by Triad Equality Alliance. HAIDEE DOLLAK


Haidee Dollak grew up in a home surrounded by classical music. Her formative years were spent shackled to the piano while her friends developed social skills. She learned her Clementi sonatinas and Bach inventions, went on to get her degree in music from UNC-Greensboro, and then threw all that out the window when, to her mother’s horror, she started playing show tunes. She is now an accompanist for Elon University’s Music Theatre program. Haidee plays for mainstage musicals, voice lessons and classes, and helps the students develop their audition books. She has accompanied students in Masterclasses with Adam Guettel, Jason Robert Brown, Andrew Lippa, Georgia Stitt, Susan Egan, and Ricky Ian Gordon, among others.

The Triad Pride Men’s Chorus will accept new singers in all voice parts (Tenor 1, Tenor 2, Baritone, and Bass) in August for our holiday concert, “Winter Comes Anew,” but you are welcome to sit in on a rehearsal at any time to see what it’s all about.

Rehearsals: Weekly rehearsals are on Tuesdays in Greensboro from 7:30 to 9:30 pm at the Greensboro Cultural Center, 200 North Davie Street, room 121. BUT SINGING IS NOT MY “THING”: The chorus welcomes non-singing volunteers to help on various committees, work the front of the house during concerts (ushering, selling tickets and merchandise), and perform other related activities. As a non-performing member of TPMC, you would be listed in the chorus programs and receive invitations to chorus social events. This is another great way to make a contribution to the success of TPMC ... and meet some pretty great guys. For more information on volunteering call us at 336.589.6267 or send email to joinus@triadpridemenschorus. org. We’ve got a spot just for you.
