Quiet No More: A Choral Celebration of Stonewall
June 27, 2019
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 commissioned piece will have performances by choruses throughout the US in 2019, the largest collaboration in the history of LGBTQ choruses. The New York performance at Carnegie Hall will see more than 400 singers from across the country on stage.
This new piece celebrates the vast legacy and worldwide change that started from 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. Honor the courage of those pioneers for social justice and equality, and join in the renewed spirit of resistance for the future. 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 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).
