Saturday, May 4, 7 p.m., at The Carolina Theatre, 310 S Greene St, Greensboro, Triad Pride Performing Arts will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising in New York City, as well as the 20th anniversary of the founding of Triad Performing Men’s Chorus along with special guests Common Woman Chorus of Durham and The Triangle Gay Men’s Chorus.
In our 20 years, we’ve not done a project THIS BIG, “We are basically telling the story of the Gay Rights Movement through song, poetry, and pictures," said Triad Pride Men's Chorus director, William Southerland. "We will begin the concert with a celebration of our 20th Anniversary with a variety of song styles and production elements, featuring many favorites from past seasons." The second half of the concert features the NORTH CAROLINA PREMIERE of Quiet No More: A Choral Celebration of Stonewall 50, one of the LGBTQ+ community’s most pivotal historical moments—the protest that ignited a movement that we are all still a part of half a century later. This eight-movement work is co-commissioned by 24 LGBTQ+ choruses from across the U.S. and is the largest collaboration in the history of LGBTQ choruses. Admission will be charged. https://carolinatheatre.com/event/triad-pride-performing-arts-20th-anniversary-gala/?occurrence_id=4273&fbclid=IwAR03iIuTv6t_6khWnYRDCb3dOoygfSAucAukNzlGuO5As0b8QeyQ3gLJbtY
