Still time to Glitter and be Gay

Song in the City
Song in the City's lunchtime recital today (26 February 2015), Glitter and be Gay finishes their sequence of recitals for LGBT History Month. This final recital explores the 20th and 21st century struggle of homosexual composers and poets through discrimination, societal struggles, the AIDs crisis, to eventual 'out and proud' emergence and recognition. There will be songs and poems by Cole Porter, Malcolm Williamson, Julian Phillips, Carol Ann Duffy, Gertrude Stein, Ned Rorem, Emily Dickinson, Aaron Copland, Lee Hoiby, Jonathan Dove, Robert Hugill, Raymond Yiu & Stephen Sondheim. As you can see, the list includes one of my own songs, a setting of AE Housman.

The concert is at 1.10pm today (26 February), in the Hall at St Botolph without Bishopsgate, London, EC2M 3TL, and will be performed by singers and actors from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. There is also a photographic exhibition The Borderline series by photographer Felipe Tozzzato, and we are promised a glass of wine courtesy of Barefoot Wine.
