The rich religious traditions of choral music mean a participant must confront sacred spaces which have historically defined the queer body as profane, obscene and unholy. Cor Flammae explores this tension by producing two concerts in seemingly opposing spaces, inviting audiences to experience choral music in a space for which it was intended (a church), or in a historically queer space (a social playspace), to see how the works resonate differently. Cor Flammae presents FALLEN ANGELS: Sacred + Profane Choral Works by historical and modern queer composers. The choir is thrilled to be led this year by our 2015 Guest Conductor, Stephen Smith.
