Celebrate! TPMC embarks on a new leg of our journey. After 14 years, Woodson Faulkner, our leader, our director, our mentor, and our friend, will be stepping down as Artistic Director. Woody has given TPMC leadership, vision, strength, structure and guidance. Tonight we will celebrate his success, his vision and his leadership as AD these past 14 years. TPMC has become one of the premier men’s choruses in NC and in the GALA community, and this is because of Woody’s guidance and leadership.

Volunteer! Singing members in TPMC volunteer 250 plus hours yearly. Board Members, Committee members contribute 400 plus hours yearly. TPMC performs 10 to 15 outreach events yearly at no charge and holds four major concerts yearly. If you are interested in volunteering, being on the board, or becoming a singing member please contacts us at joinus@triadpridemenschorus.org.

Support! If you do not want TPMC to continue read no further. As TPMC continues its journey we need your help. Without your donations and support in ticket sales TPMC will not survive. As many of you are aware, grants and public funding programs have been cut or eliminated, making TPMC now more than ever dependent on your contributions, donations and support. TPMC’s annual budget is $40,000 plus. Concert venues cost $8,000. Salaries $13,000, printing & postage cost $8,000 plus, music cost $5,000 plus just to list a few of our operating expenses. We need your financial support as we do not want to close our doors but without your help we may have to. Thank you for everyone who has supported us these past 14 years you have made a vision become a reality.

Searching! For our spring semester Mario Capano our Assistant Artistic Director will be stepping up and taking the leadership role as Artistic Director. We are currently seeking to replace our Artistic Director. If you know of anyone who would be interested please refer them to our website www.triadpridemenschorus.org.

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. W2012.indd 3

How to Contact Us

If you would like to contribute to TPMC, sing in the chorus, volunteer, or send us comments, please contact us through:

Email: contact@triadpridemenschorus.org Join our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/triadpridemenschorus

Join Us You’ve seen us in concert. You’ve seen us around town. Now you, or someone you know, can sing with us! The Triad Pride Men’s Chorus accepts new singers in all voice parts (Tenor 1, Tenor 2, Baritone, and Bass) in January for the Big Gay Sing, but you are welcome to sit in on a rehearsal at any time to see what it’s all about. Simply call us at 336.589.6267 or email us at joinus@triadpridemenschorus.org to get the ball rolling. When you contact us, we’ll give you information about our vocal placements, which will be held on Tuesdays during the months of August and January. TRY US OUT: Sit in on a regular rehearsal to meet us and to see what goes on. 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.
