Quiet No More: A Choral Celebration of Stonewall
Common Woman Chorus and Triangle Gay Men's Chorus partner together to present a new work, Quiet No More, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising. Your song sponsorship will help support this moving and inspiring event on Saturday evening, June 22 at the Carolina Theatre of Durham!
This work celebrates those who rose up and fought back during this pivotal moment in history which sparked the LGBTQ+ rights movement. Quiet No More, commissioned by the New York Gay Men's Chorus and Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles, will have performances by choruses throughout the US in 2019, the largest collaboration in the history of LGBTQ choruses. Special guests Triad Pride Women's and Men's Choruses will perform with us.
CONCERT TICKETS ON SALE NOW:
A portion of proceeds will benefit the LGBTQ Center of Durham and LGBT Center of Raleigh.
This performance in Carolina Theatre's Fletcher Hall is made possible in part by a grant from the Durham Arts Council's Fletcher Performing Arts Fund of the Triangle Community Foundation.
