New York Festival of Song: Songs of Gay Life - Tuesday, November 15th, 2011

The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center and the University of Maryland's LGBT Equity Center present:

NY Festival of Song: Songs of Gay Life

Tuesday, November 15, 2011 8:00 pm - Gildenhorn Recital Hall

This season, NYFOS returns to the Center with a bold new program, Manning the Canon: Songs of Gay Life, that explores the quintessential moments of a gay man’s experience. Some songs are explicitly about gay life, while others were not intended to be "gay songs." But as NYFOS founder Steven Blier says, "What I have discovered, or rediscovered, is that a great song speaks to everyone, whispering its secrets to all listeners." Learn more about the New York Festival of Song and several pieces featured on this program in the UM Libraries:
