Nashville in Harmony, Nashville’s city chorus for people of all sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression, has announced the program and further details for Brave New Hope. The concert takes place Apr. 28 at Langford Auditorium. Tickets are $30 advance and $35 day of show.
Brave New Hope combines song and spoken word for a concert that allows all our voices to be heard. The performance features Nashville in Harmony’s 120-strong chorus singing popular selections from The Greatest Showman and Dear Evan Hansen, among others, as well as poetry readings from Southern Word’s Gray Bulla, Debria Tyler and Leslie Garcia.
The second set of the performance features Nashville in Harmony’s Major Minors, a choral group for young singers ages 14-18 that provides a safe, welcoming, and accessible place for all youth that celebrates the joy, diversity, strength, and pride of today’s young people. Featured works from Major Minors includes John Legend’s “If You’re Out There,” Rent’s “No Day But Today” and Jack Johnson’s “Better Together,” among others.
The concert also features the world premiere of I Am Me All The Time, a new work by Artistic Director Don Schlosser that interweaves original poetry and choral music into a powerful, unified voice.
“Our dream for this project was to create an extended work that explored the diversity and intersectionality of identity, particularly as expressed by contemporary teenagers who navigate new understandings of race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality,” says Don Schlosser, Artistic Director. “It’s not possible in one work to represent the complete spectrum of diversity we celebrate in our communities in middle Tennessee, but we offer these four poems as four portraits, perhaps in some way like four points in a compass rose, and the music as reflections of those portraits.”
