A collaboration with Early Music Vancouver
Reginald Mobley, countertenor Alexander Weimann, harpsichord and piano
As was with people of colour, the contribution of gay composers and musicians throughout history has been largely forgotten, hidden, or ignored. And in this “Age of Grindr”, where the “woof” of an app is stronger than the bite of wit, we need to be reminded that we have a responsibility as lay curators of culture. With a sampling music of gay composers from as early as the 18th century, Countertenor Reggie Mobley invites you you join him in standing in the light of a whitewashed past, and expose the spectrum of color that deserves to be seen.
Please join us after the show to meet and chat with the artists.
