We are an LGBTQ vocal ensemble celebrating our musical heritage and future through thoughtful programming, public engagement, and local artistic collaborations. Quorum Boston is an auditioned chamber choir of 20 singers. We perform classical music, from the medieval era through new works. However, in addition to being a musical ensemble, Quorum Boston serves as a gathering of LGBTQ musicians in the city of Boston. The queer experience is one in which community plays a uniquely vital role. Creative initiatives are member-lead, and this flexibility allows the ensemble to evolve to suit the needs of the community. Quorum Boston creates a space for dialogue, music, scholarship, and art to flourish in this great city.
We elected a thin-skinned Nazi to the office of the President who is turning our “democracy” into a fascist, totalitarian oligarchy dominated by the 1%. Trump is a monster. His policies, when he names them, are destructive. His narcissistic behavior is more so.
Congressional “negotiators” released a spending bill that saves the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for Humanities, and National Public Radio until September at which time, the President and his impotent cronies may still cut arts funding. It is ever important to remain vigilant. And, for the love of all that’s sacred, keep creating. If you need help, ask for it. Our existence is our resistance. May the force be with you. – KD
