Pride of Place

One Voice Mixed Choir, Minnesota's LGBTQ mixed chorus, builds a bridge from May’s Mental Health Awareness Month to June’s Pride Month. This weekend’s concert, Sound Mind, features queer voices exploring mental health through song, story and visual art. Sound Mind showcases five Minnesota composers, stories of resilience and original art projected throughout the concert hall. Watch the preview video and find ticket info here.

Meanwhile, join me every morning this week at 9 a.m. for Proud to Be, a celebration of Pride Month by asking classical musicians in the LGBTQ community what Pride means to them. You can listen to the conversations anytime at YourClassical MPR.
