Who We Are

Organized in 1988, as a male chorus, NCMC welcomes all men, (cisgender and transgender) or non-binary tenors baritones and basses (TTBB) that seek to “touch the hearts and change the minds” of the residents in our region through choral music performances featuring the distinct sound of a TTBB chorus.

Over the past nearly three decades, the Chorus has accumulated a varied and interesting repertoire that includes musical selections from contemporary to classical, show tunes to folk tunes. As a member of GALA (the Gay and Lesbian Association of Choruses), we also have available the music libraries of more than 190 affiliate ensembles worldwide.
