Music: Sun Jun 13


The intersection of personal and social justice is embodied by the struggles of the LGBTQ community. In keeping with the spirit of Pride Month, this morning's solo piano selections highlight the work of gay composers from a wide range of time periods and cultural backgrounds. The CUUC Choir graces our service as well with the Calypso-style hymn "Turn the World Around" and the tender "Ashokan Farewell," offered as a sort of leave-taking for the summer respite. Read on for programming details, and stay tuned for spoken introductions.
