How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
Love is universal. Love is for everyone. Love is all around. Love is love.
Join Kantos for a performance that charts the course of true love, which never did run smooth. Interspersing choral works and poetry by old romantics and young lovers, we’ll melt your heart with love songs – no crooning though, we promise! We feature works by contemporary composers Derri Joseph Lewis, Alex Groves and Mari Esabel Valverde, who share fresh perspectives on LGBTQ+ lives and lovers.
You’re invited to join Kantos to celebrate love, loving and being loved. After all, love is all you need.
The tickets for this performance operate on a Pay What You Can basis; you choose the ticket band that you are able or happy to pay for.
