Woodstock. The moon landing. Vietnam. Stonewall. In the summer of 1969, current events churned into an era of rebellion and change. SMC transports us back to this vibrant year through the chart-topping, culture-defining music that blared through turntables and transistor radios. Joining with a coalition of LGBTQ choruses across the country, we also present "Quiet No More," an inspiring new musical theater work that tells the stories of the Stonewall riots and the birth of the struggle to live life out loud.
Featuring hits from Marvin Gaye, Three Dog Night, Sly & the Family Stone, The 5th Dimension and more!
