This Spring, the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus presents “Passion,” at Davies Symphony Hall. “Passion” is more than a concert; it’s a celebration of life. Sharing stories of passion as only amazing music can express them, the show crosses three different centuries, with three stunning premieres, capturing the passions that define us and bring us together. Featured are the world premiere of “My Friend, My Lover: Five Walt Whitman Songs,” from Whitman’s brilliant and subversive works of the 1800’s; the world premiere of “#twitterlieder: 15 Tweets in 3 Acts,” by composer James Eakin and librettist Charles Anthony Silvestri; and the San Francisco premiere of Jake Heggie’s amazing choral opera “For a Look or a Touch,” presented in collaboration with San Francisco Opera, American Conservatory Theatre and Contemporary Jewish Museum, with special guest stars baritone Morgan Smith and actor Kip Niven.
