The evening will feature Quiet No More: A Choral Celebration of Stonewall50, a new choral suite written by a group of LGBTQ composers: Tony-nominated singer/songwriter Ann Hampton Callaway; Michael McElroy, the director of the 2019 Tony-honored Broadway Inspirational Voices; Our Lady J, writer and producer on the Golden Globe-nominated TV series Pose; musical theatre composers Julian Hornik and Mike Shaieb; and One Voice Chorus Artistic Director Jane Ramseyer Miller.
Quiet No More examines the legacy and worldwide change towards more equitable rights for the LGBTQ population that resulted from the six days of the Stonewall riots in June 1969 in New York City’s West Village.
“To create Quiet No More, we chose LGBTQ composers who had a range of original and distinctive voices, so that the piece would be like a mosaic of perspectives on the story,” said Dr. Charles Beale, artistic director of the New York City Gay Men’s Chorus. “We wanted the piece to facilitate a truly national celebration of the Stonewall Uprising—a vast community of singers across the US, coming together with one voice at a time of celebration and also, as it has turned out, of national crisis and new oppressions.”
