UPDATE: We want to THANK all of our backers for helping PGMC reach our initial goal. Although our goal appears fully funded, the $5,000.00 only accounts for approximately 10% of the monies needed to send over 115 singers to New York. We hope to greatly surpass our initial target before our campaign ends on September 15. Please encourage those you know to continue to donate to our campaign. Every pledge counts, no matter the amount.
Over 115 singers from the Portland Gay Men's Chorus (PGMC) will travel from Oregon to New York City to perform BraveSouls and Dreamers, a peace cantata, on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 in the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine.
We are honored to have been invited by Flight For Freedom to represent the city of Portland. This will be an historic moment for PGMC and the gay choral movement. This is no small feat for our organization, and we can't do it without your support. To perform to our greatest ability, we have committed to ensuring more than 115 singers travel to New York City.
PGMC is proud to cast a renewed spirit of peace and unity -- similar to the one felt in the days after 9/11 -- through its art. Our performance will come to a poignant close when the New York City Gay Men's Chorus will join us as we are conducted by Bishop Gene Robinson, the first openly-gay bishop to be ordained by the U.S. Episcopal Church.
Every dollar donated will help us send more than 115 singers to New York. Thank you for joining us in spreading an important message while honoring the memory of all those affected by 9/11.
