The Harrisburg Gay Men's Chorus was founded in 1987 in memory of Joe Tucci, who's dream it was to see an all male chorus in the City of Harrisburg.

The chorus has literally traveled from one end of the country to the other to perform...from Carnegie Hall in New York, NY to the Civic Auditorium in San Jose, CA.  The Carnegie Hall debut was in May 1993 when the chorus was asked to join voices with the Turtle Creek Chorale, a 160 voice men's chorus from Dallas, TX and women's choruses from Dallas and New York to perform John Rutter's Requiem with the Manhattan Philharmonic.  In July 2000, the chorus made their first singing appearance at a GALA Music Festival in San Jose, CA.  In July 2008, the chorus made their second appearance at a GALA Music Festival in Miami, FL.

In September 1999, the Harrisburg Gay Men's Chorus became a resident choral company of the Whitaker Center in Harrisburg.  Participating in the Grand Opening ceremonies of the Center, one of the highlights was the introduction of the Harrisburg Song, sung by the Harrisburg Gay Men's Chorus and introduced by Mayor Stephen Reed. 

The chorus has hosted and performed with several nationally acclaimed performers like opera soprano Marilyn Horne; jazz singer, song writer, actress Ann Hampton Callaway and singer, songwriter Judy Collins.
