ANGELS

at Online (6pm)
Angels--a virtual musical event in remembrance of those loved and lost to AIDS--streaming on Thursday, March 11 at 6pm on SFGMC TV, the free online platform showcasing exciting performances, dynamic interviews, singer spotlights, and more.

Angels will commemorate the 30th anniversary of "When We No Longer Touch," the world's first requiem dedicated to those lost to AIDS, with a rebroadcast from SFGMC's momentous 40th anniversary concert that took place on October 26, 2018 at San Francisco's St. Ignatius Church. This moving work was commissioned by SFGMC Artistic Director Dr. Timothy Seelig and the Turtle Creek Chorale in Dallas, Texas. A documentary of the work was created by PBS and awarded the Emmy Award for 'Best Documentary' in 1994.

The event will also include the premiere of a video celebrating the creation of SFGMC's Artist Portal at the National AIDS Memorial Grove located in Golden Gate Park. Positioned at the west entrance of the Grove, the stunning installation centers around an eight-foot-tall Emperor Chime. This unique aural feature provides the extended SFGMC family from around the world with a place to reflect and remember. The memorial includes the names of regional, national, and international arts organizations from all disciplines who have also lost members.

"Those of us now living through the second pandemic of our lives know on an even deeper level that we are surrounded by angels," said Seelig. "The losses are unimaginable. There is no doubt they continue to give us strength to carry on in their memory. This extraordinary work has proved itself to be timeless. Having been performed all over the world, it still brings a very personal message to each listener. All of us have experienced all of this in our lives. Yet, we can stand and sing or say as the music soars to its triumphant end, 'Through all the tears, pain and sadness, comes the one thought that can make me smile again: I have loved.'"

"As we approach the one year anniversary of COVID-19, it is important to reflect on the loss our community has endured, both now and during the AIDS pandemic," adds Verdugo. "Angels is sure to be a cathartic experience that sends a message of healing and hope."
