Queer Songbook Orchestra

SONGS OF RESILIENCE

Featuring works by kd Lang, Billy Strayhorn, Rodgers & Hart,Ani DiFranco, Stephen Sondheim, and more, Songs of Resilience will uplift and empower the audience.

Building a living archive of songs by queer songwriters and performers,
the QSO explores the empowering elements of music and sheds light on the contradiction of a public that adores the art but shuns the artist.

Casting a contemporary queer eye on a century’s worth of popular song, the Queer Songbook Orchestra reveal the LGBTQ backstories and personal narratives that richly populate the music of the past several generations. Collaborating with some of the leading voices from across Canada, each selection the QSO performs has been reinterpreted specifically for the ensemble, allowing the listener a new entry point into familiar works. The QSO is a favourite of festivals and arts centres across Canada including Luminato, The Banff Centre, the National Arts Centre, and more.
