Stonewall 50: All of Us

On June 28, 1969, New York City police raided the Stonewall Inn, a small gay bar in Greenwich Village. While not an uncommon occurrence, this time was different . . . the community fought back. The Stonewall Riots are widely seen as one of the most pivotal moments in LGBTQ history. In collaboration with the New York City Gay Men’s Chorus and the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles, HMC presents Quiet No More: a Choral Celebration of Stonewall, a new work that commemorates the 50th Anniversary of the beginning of the Gay Rights movement. Join us as we celebrate the vast legacy and worldwide revolution that rose from those six tumultuous days in June as we sing for our lives and the lives of others, every day.

Saturday, March 23, 2019, 8:00 p.m. and Sunday, March 24, 2019, 4:00 p.m. at The Folly Theater.
