This program, by turns poignant and joyful, will celebrate life and the beautiful diversity of our community while raising awareness about important social issues that affect us all. Come and hear David Conte's Elegy for Matthew and two Whitman settings by Conte and Michael Hennagin: Invocation and Dance and Give Me the Splendid Silent Sun.
