The CtGMC presents two concert series each season in December and April.

In addition, the CtGMC has been a guest artist group at many other venues, including Provincetown, MA as a guest of the Provincetown Business Guild, the Ivoryton Playhouse, the Little Theatre of Manchester, the University of Connecticut at Storrs, and the Gard Arts Center in New London.
 
Community Outreach is a central part of the CtGMC’s mission, and recent events have benefited organizations such as Hearts of Strangers, True Colors, Spirit of Life, CT Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, and Alliance for Living.

The CtGMC also produces a monthly Bingomania! hosted by screen legend “Joan Crawford” at the Annex Club in New Haven. Thousands of people attend CtGMC events and performances each year.
