QUEER SONGBOOK ORCHESTRA
https://www.facebook.com/toqso

Pulling back the curtain on one of the most profound musical partnerships of the 20th century, the Queer Songbook Orchestra is celebrating the artistry and integrity of the late Billy Strayhorn on the one hundredth anniversary of his birth, Nov. 29, 1915. Heralded as a "superb pop ensemble" by Toronto's NOW Magazine, the QSO will be performing all new arrangements of several Strayhorn compositions and exploring the life of the soft spoken, but unapologetic, openly gay man who worked for thirty years in the shadow of Duke Ellington.

The Queer Songbook Orchestra is a 13-piece Toronto based ensemble of top queer and allied musicians, compiling and reinterpreting music that has shaped the LGBTQ community and beyond.
