A unique celebration

On June 6, I had the privilege of attending the premiere of The Heart of the Matter: A Pride Meditation at Saint Margaret's Episcopal Church in Washington, DC.

From the website of co-creator Buck McDaniel: "Neither concert nor play, The Heart of the Matter is a meditation on LGBTQIA+ Pride’s past, present, and future. The work pairs original texts narrated by Queer theologian Dr. Eric Thomas (The New School, General Theological Seminary) and music composed by Buck McDaniel (Saturday Night Live, The Moth) in varying combinations of solo organ (McDaniel), horn (Van Parker), and tenor vocals (Matthew Jones)."
