Presented by the Miami Gay Men’s Chorus and featuring the Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus and Gay Men’s Chorus of South Florida, Up, Rise, SING! pays tribute to those who were unafraid of speaking out for equality. We invite you for a night of wonderful music marking the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion with a piece entitled Quiet No More: A Choral Celebration of Stonewall50. It’s a brand new choral music suite co-commissioned by New York City Gay Men’s Chorus and the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles. This piece will be performed by choruses nationwide in 2019, the largest collaboration in the history of LGBTQIA+ choruses.
Featuring the voices of a group of diverse LGBTQIA+ 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), Quiet No More 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 marks the occasion of the first ever World Pride in New York, and is the Pride Month event you can’t miss!
