When We Began
The Greater Falmouth Mostly All-Male Men’s Chorus (GFMAMMC) was founded in 1990 by Tom Goux and Tom Aldrich, highly respected local musicians, to provide an opportunity for singers interested in performing choral music in an informal yet challenging community setting.
The original motto of the GFMAMMC was “Sing from the Heart – Sing Till We Part.” Chorus members were expected to do two things: take the music seriously and have fun while doing so. Some but certainly not all of the original chorus members had experience with part singing. Very few were sight readers. There were no auditions. Under Mr. Goux’s careful guidance, however, the GFMAMMC developed into a capable unit in which those members with greater musical skills were expected to assist those with lesser skills, resulting in a balanced sound that could be applied to a range of musical genres.
Who We Are
Over the GFMAMMC’s history, the credo has been to take the music seriously and have fun doing so! All musical skill levels can participate in singing – no auditions are required; just a love of singing!
In 2015, on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of the Chorus’ founding, its membership voted to change the name of the Chorus to the Greater Falmouth Community Chorus, and to shift to the harmonies of a mixed voice chorus: soprano, alto, tenor, and bass.
