Blog|Brendan Byrne

On November 16 and 17, Grace will host the San Francisco premiere of Requiem Mass: A Queer Divine Ritea monumental original choral work by renowned singer/composer Holcombe Waller that invokes remembrance and peace for the dead who suffered persecution for their sexual orientation or gender expression.

Waller’s Requiem Mass has garnered media attention from across the Bay Area, including articles by 48 HillsKQED and SF Weekly, which noted that  “the explicit goal of Requiem Mass is a catharsis, something that’s more closely associated with communion rather than community.”
