The online showcase will kick off at 8 p.m. ET via NAGLY’s YouTube and Facebook pages. It will feature Queer performers sharing their favorite songs and personal connections to these works. There will also be mini-interviews and testimonials by those who work with NAGLY.

Among the artists involved are Abigail Whitney Smith, Wes Hunter, and Todd McNeel, Jr., and pianist Katie Barr.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for NAGLY to partner with an amazing cultural institution to bring joy and music in a time when it’s most needed. We hope our entire NAGLY family, from youth, to parents, to staff and supporters take advantage of this opportunity for free high-quality entertainment,” NAGLY Executive Director, Steve Harrington said in a press release.

“MassOpera is a forward-thinking company, actively creating partnerships with organizations fighting systemic oppression—particularly in new and innovative ways during this pandemic,” added MassOpera Executive Director, William Neely.
