Quiet No More:  A Choral Celebration of Stonewall

June 27, 2019

Carnegie Hall

NYCGMC commemorates the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising in NYC, as well as the 40th anniversary of the founding of NYCGMC, with a brand new choral music suite, co-commissioned by NYCGMC and the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles.  The piece will have performances by choruses throughout the US in 2019, the largest collaboration in the history of LGBTQ choruses. 

 This new piece celebrates the legacy and worldwide changes that started from the events in June 1969. The protests at Stonewall lit the fire for PRIDE, the effects of which are still as vital today as they were 50 years ago.  Quiet No More:  A Choral Celebration of Stonewall50 marks the occasion of the first ever World Pride in New York, and is the Pride Month event you can’t miss.

 Quiet No More features the voices of a group of diverse LGBTQ composers, including Julian Hornik (Dear Evan Hansen); Our Lady J (Pose, Transparent); Mike Shaieb (Through A Glass Darkly); Ann Hampton Callaway (singer/song-writer); Michael McElroy (Broadway Inspirational Voices, Rent); and Jane Ramseyer Miller (One Voice Chorus).
