Fri. June 3, 2016, 8 pm and
Sat. June 4, 2016, 2 pm & 8 pm
Prince Theater
1412 Chestnut St. Philadelphia PA

Celebrate LGBT families in all their various forms. The first half will feature “Alexander’s House,” a one-act choral staged musical about a man who dies and leaves his summer home to his estranged son instead of his partner. It is a story about bringing people together from separate worlds and about the family of friends we create. The original music and lyrics are by Michael Shaieb, the composer and lyricist of Through a Glass Darkly. Based on the book by Michael Schaieb and Brent Lord.

The second half features the world premiere of a new work commissioned by PGMC, That Summer: A Fantasia on Family. The cantata is in three movements, with music by Andrea Clearfield and libretto by Tom Gualtieri. Drawing on interviews and transcripts, and scored for men’s chorus, piano, and percussion, That Summer dramatizes the evolution of a community coming to terms with something we have never had to face: the dream of a family in a society which, until now, has not legally acknowledged our relationships. We’ll also have other songs focusing on family, friendship and love.
