SongFusion presents Ricky Ian Gordon's Green Sneakers
LGBT Community Center, Lerner Auditorium
New York, NY
Share this event:


SongFusion presents Voxare String Quartet and baritone Michael Kelly in a special benefit performance of Ricky Ian Gordon's Green Sneakers, held at the ***LGBT Community Center*** with stage direction by Jeanne Slater.  Hailed by OperaToday as "...a masterpiece," Green Sneakers is a heart wrenching account of the loss of Ricky's partner Jeffrey Grossi to AIDS.  Stunningly honest, the songs draw particular attention to the often unseen struggles of the caretaker of a sick loved-one. All proceeds from this event will be gifted to the Bailey Holt House, an AIDS facility in Greenwich Village, which suffered damage during Hurricane Sandy.



NOTE: this performance is the second of a TWO-NIGHT EVENT, Gay Words/Gay Music, co-curated by Michael Kelly and Kathleen Tagg, and part of NY NOW!, an annual SongFusion series created by Kathleen Tagg.

The program of the first concert, on MAY 3rd at the ***National Opera Center***, will include works by some of NY's finest song composers: Eve Beglarian, David Del Tredici, Paula Kimper, David Leisner, Ben Moore, Ned Rorem, Glen Roven, and David Sisco.
