"Gay men needed: new chorus starting up in Halifax" article in The ChronicleHerald with quotes from [[TimCross?|Tim Callahan-Cross]]. "Five men are trying to put the project together. "
In November, 2018 a committee was formed to work toward starting a gay male chorus in Halifax. TimCross?, Executive Director of the Nova Scotia Choral Federation met with BryanCrocker?, RobertMillar?, GaryWilliams?, and GrahamBolton? with the intention of starting a chorus. An interest session was organized at the Halifax Public Library to guage interest and to our delight over 65 men showed up and most expressed interest in being part of a chorus.

We had established and registered Halifax Gay Men's Chorus Society as a not for profit organization, secured a conductor, Bryan Crocker, and accompanist, Heather Fraser, established a Board of Directors, found a rehearsal space and the rest is history.
HGMC's first performance was as guests of the Aeolian singers, barely 2 months after our first rehearsal. "I'll never forget the overwhelming applause and standing ovation we received as we took to the stage. It was one of the most exciting moments I've experienced". Tim Cross, Founding President. JJ Lyon, during our post concert debriefing said "I was surprised anyone came to hear us. It was so long ago that we wouldn't have much of an audience."
