I Am Harvey Milk, originally commissioned by the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus, weaves the story of Milk's life-from boyhood to his rise as the first openly gay man to hold public office in California, and finally, to his assassination. Andrew Lippa's soaring melodies and lyrics have already sold out houses in Los Angeles's Disney Concert Hall and New York City's Lincoln Center. Now, I Am Harvey Milk makes its Washington, D.C. debut, where so many political opinions, legislative decisions, and, most recently, a landmark Supreme Court ruling, have impacted the LGBT community.

I Am Harvey Milk will be presented alongside the world premiere of Lippa's newest work, I Am Anne Hutchinson. Hutchinson is widely considered the mother of women's rights and religious tolerance in America. In 1637, she was tried for insubordination to the patriarchal church, for the "sin" of forming women's study groups. While she was branded a radical, like Harvey Milk centuries later, her tragic end only strengthened her legend, furthering her cause of women's independence.
