Storyline

The Power of Harmony, through the personal experiences of a gay men's chorus, takes an intimate look at controversial issues of the day: coming out and gay marriage, religious views on homosexuality, and gay adoption. The Turtle Creek Chorale is a gay organization that refuses to live on the fringes. They have survived, indeed thrived, for over 25 years, right in the heart of the Bible belt: Dallas, Texas. They are first class musicians. They are irreverent, outrageous, angry, forgiving, and compassionate. They are individuals battling together in an intolerant world. Through music, they have transformed the painful experiences of death and dying from AIDS, and rejection from their own families and churches, into a powerful voice for compassion and equality. The Power of Harmony captures moments of deep sorrow, and the need for human connection and community. It also reveals the joy that humor and music can bring. Written by Laura Neitzel

Power of Harmony is a powerful piece of inspiration
17 September 2005 | by (Dallas, TX) – See all my reviews

Ginny Martin, the director of The Power of Harmony, is simply a genius. She has taken a variety of stories and weaved them together in a brilliant symphony of inspiration. This is likely to be another award-winning work by this talented documentarian.

Using the backdrop of The Turtle Creek Chorale, Martin has created an extremely entertaining and enlightening message. Using a mosaic of stories and and music, the audience is challenged to look at this men's chorus as a metaphor for the journey that we all travel. The film looks at religion, parenting, family, acceptance and community through the eyes of the Chorale's members.

The Power of Harmony is a powerful piece of inspiration.
