Add Friendship and Hope to Your Event with a PGMC Appearance
Can’t wait for our next concert?  Hate looking for parking?  Have PGMC come to you!  In addition to our three major concerts, we also do performances in the community.  Whether you want to deliver a message of inclusion and acceptance for all, want to augment a formal event with some serene music, or just want to add a dash of whimsy, we’re here for you.  We do a variety of events, including flash mob appearances, school/community outreach parties, community/civic events, pride festivals, holiday parties, commitment ceremony receptions, gala fundraisers and anniversary celebrations.  We have music to suit almost any occasion.  Have members of the entire Chorus come out, or our select ensemble, Brotherly Love, can come instead. Rates:
* PGMC 1-1.5 hour concert $3,000
* Brotherly Love   1-1.5 hour concert $2,000

Prices are negotiable based on length of performance and non-profit status.  To find out how you can book an appearance with Philadelphia’s premier men’s chorus, e-mail the director, Joe Buches: director @ pgmc.org
