based on open letters by LGBTQ+ youth advocates Mimi Lemay and Sam Brinton
RONALD PERERA, When Music Sounds
OLA GJEILO, Dark Night of the Soul,

GJEILO, Luminous Night of the Soul

The 14th Annual Daniel Pinkham Award will be presented to Sam Brinton for their work to end the dangerous and discredited practice of conversion therapy.

Voices reach out across generations in a newly commissioned work by an award winning composer. A mother writes to her transgender son on his 5th birthday to affirm who he always was. A survivor of conversion therapy writes to the memory of their own younger self, fighting to survive their mother’s desperate attempt to save them from who they are. 

We further explore the intimate power of the human voice and spirit through poems on music by Walter de la Mare, Percy Bysshe Shelley, and Emily Dickinson, and a contemporary Norwegian composer’s settings of a 16th century Spanish mystic.
