Yerba Buena Center for the Arts to Present Requiem Mass: A Queer Divine Rite

Yerba Buena Center for the Arts to Present Requiem Mass: A Queer Divine Rite In collaboration with Ghiberti Foundation at Grace Cathedral, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA) is pleased to present Requiem Mass: A Queer Divine Rite, a monumental choral work organized by renowned singer-composer Holcombe Waller. Making its San Francisco debut, Requiem Mass honors and invokes the peaceful repose of those who have suffered persecution due to their sexual orientation or gender expression. Requiem Mass: A Queer Divine Rite will have a two-night engagement in the historic Grace Cathedral Episcopal Church on Friday and Saturday, November 16-17, 2018, at 7:30PM.

Featuring Waller and an all-abilities choir, the performance is an emotional and personal work informed by research into the pivotal years of gay history from the 1980s through the present day. The evening-length musical ceremony explores contemporary faith, advocacy through art, and collective catharsis, with emphasis on and engagement with San Francisco's LGBTQIA+ community. Requiem Mass incorporates a reading from the Grace Cathedral clergy; a sermon by public theologian, artist, and poet Marvin K. White; a musical ensemble accompanying the choir developed from Waller's workshops; and more.
