San Francisco LGBTQ Live Musical Event

By Charlotte Robinson, November 27, 2021

The San Francisco Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band is ringing in the holiday season with their first in-person indoor concert since 2019. Winter Postcards will take you on an aural journey with music celebrating the winter season from around the world on Saturday December 11th at St Mark's Lutheran Church, 1111 O'Farrell Street in San Francisco beginning at 1PM PST. The performance features a number of fabulous compositions including Alfred Reed’s seminal Russian Christmas Music, Julie Giroux’s lyrical Evening Snow in Kambara & James Curnow’s enthralling Overture to a Winter Festival. The Band will also perform several sentimental favorites including Greensleeves, A Rollicking Hanukkah & Concert Suite from ‘The Polar Express.’ Over the past two years it's been easy to feel disconnected from different cultures from around the world. This program is their way to reach out across the globe & celebrate the winter holiday season through the shared language of live music. Founded in 1978 by Jon Sims at the height of Anita Bryant’s anti-gay crusade the San Francisco Lesbian/Gay Freedom Band has made music to build understanding among communities of all sexual orientations & identities for more than four decades. Ever since making a splash by marching up Market Street with Harvey Milk’s convertible in the 1978 San Francisco Gay Freedom Day Parade the Band has been appearing throughout the City to promote LGBTQ+ visibility. Audience Members 12 years of age & older must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. Children 5 to 12 need not be vaccinated to attend. All audience members 3 & older must wear a mask at all times. The performance is free but there is a $15 suggested donation. For More Info & Tix…
