Spanning 120 years of unsung history, Unbreakable is an epoch choral work exploring the gay experience in America through the words and music of Andrew Lippa. The work was recorded live at its world premiere featuring The San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus at Nourse Theater in San Francisco, CA in June 2018. The CD package includes a 36-page booklet with full lyrics, performance photos, a synopsis, and liner notes from
show producer Bruce Cohen. The album is produced by Leslie Ann Jones, with Andrew Lippa serving as executive producer.
Focusing on a curated selection of stories throughout American LGBTQ history from 1900 through the present day - inspired by the African American playwright August Wilson, who wrote a collection of 10 plays chronicling the black experience in the 20th century - Unbreakable is a heartrending and ultimately triumphant look at where we've been, what we've come through, and who we are today. Most of all, Unbreakable is a tribute to the perseverance and power of a people who would not be defeated and
could not be broken.
Lippa explains: "Unbreakable is celebration; it is derision; it is memory; it is aspiration; it is wholeness and brokenness and loss and triumph and creativity and joy. It is us. Unbreakable is a 14-movement experience in words and music, filled with powerful yet sometimes forgotten figures. It is filled with the kind of singing that can move mountains and the kind of singing that can break hearts. Unbreakable is, at its core, an evening about hope and family, about belonging and believing, about trusting in change and knowing that, in time, it comes."
