About “Tales Of Our City
It was 40 years ago when author Armistead Maupin penned the very first article that became the international phenomenon of “Tales Of The City,” bringing the colorful life and times of San Francisco to the entire world. Maupin joins SFGMC for an evening full of stories and music about our home and its heroes, while revisiting this magical work of literature.
Act I includes excerpts from “NakedMan” the groundbreaking multi-movement piece originally commissioned and performed by the Chorus in 1996, which chronicled the lives and loves of the men of SFGMC against the backdrop of the AIDS pandemic. Act II includes excerpts from the wildly popular commissioned work “I Am Harvey Milk” by composer Andrew Lippa, which SFGMC premiered in 2013.
“Tales Of Our City: Our Lives, Our Heroes” also presents a world premiere by Mari Esabel Valverde, one of the world’s up-and-coming transgender women composers, as well as a brand-new piece by SFGMC Composer-In-Residence James Eakin. Accompanying the Chorus for the entire evening will be the 60-piece Bay Area Rainbow Symphony.
