from then till now

In 1992 a group of enthousiastic gay singers united in Arnhem (The Netherlands) and started the Arnhem Gay Men's Choir Het Herenakkoord. The Dutch word "herenakkoord" means both "gentlemen's agreement" and "gentlemen's chord". The choir was founded to fulfill the need for gay  men to sing together as gay men. The pleasure in singing and the bond between members are important motives to be in the choir.




Our repertoire is very varied. Sometimes the songs have been musically (re)arranged and/or provided with new lyrics. Lyrics telling the tale of the "gentlemen's love", not seldom with a jest, are preferred. Most songs are sung in four-parts-harmony.



Performing regularly is very important to us. High lights were the performances during big and smaller festivals, at home and abroad. However, with just as much pleasure we perform in smaller premises nearer to our home base.
