Twin Cities Gay Men’s Chorus: Erased
Featuring new commissions by Jake Runestad and Tim Takach, the Twin Cities Gay Men’s Chorus spring concert “Erased” will address the communities and environments that are in danger of being erased: from indigenous peoples and trans youth, to natural habitats – as well as our very own lives.
The first half of the concert will also feature the local premiere of “Listen,” a compelling work for the Chamber Singers ensemble. The second half of the concert will address one thing we wish could be erased: the stigma against those who live with HIV. TCGMC will premiere a new song cycle called “Stigmata”, composed by Gerald Gurss, that addresses through song the effects of this stigma on the lives of people living with HIV every day. The metaphor of the stigmata serves to remind people that we don’t need to inflict the horrible pains of social crucifixion upon the HIV+ community.
Join TCGMC for this powerful evening of music and reflection.
