The Playground Ensemble presents "Speaking of Pride"

Celebrate Pride with the Playground Ensemble at Invisible City, a stunning venue in the West Colfax neighborhood.


You will receive the address of Invisible City after you purchase your ticket. Unfortunately, Invisible City is not wheelchair-accessible.  There are a series of steps up from the sidewalk to the front door.  

Enjoy our semi-staged performance of music inspired by LGBTQ authors, with artist talk-back, sweet treats from French for Sugar, and a wine reception (non-alcoholic beverages also available).  

The concert includes three works for narrator and musical accompaniment:  
Miss Furr and Miss Skeene is Gertrude Stein's whimsical portrait of a lesbian couple she knew in Paris in the early 20th century.  Linda Dusman's percussion music comments playfully and subtly on the hypnotic, repetitive text.

Howl* is Allen Ginsberg's epic masterpiece, a poem that defined the Beat Generation.  Written in 1955, its frank depiction of sexuality and drug use shocked the world. Lee Hyla's violent and angular string quartet music amplifies the intensity of the poem.

Fragments is a new work by local author Miriam Suzanne. Like journal entries, its short, epigrammatic statements are deeply personal explorations of gender and identity: poignant, humorous, challenging, startling.  Nathan Hall's score for string quartet, percussion, and electric bass grooves with elements of pop and minimalist music.


*Howl contains graphic sexual language.
