How do you define yourself? How do others define you? Self-identity is deeply personal and ever-evolving. We learn more about who we are every day and showing our truest self to the world can be all at once frightening, empowering and liberating. In More than a Letter we will reflect on self-identity and self-expression through the artistry of LGBTQ composers and musicians, celebrating difference, finding common ground and embracing the beauty of authenticity.

Join us pre-concert and during intermission, to explore the never-ending human question of identity and to challenge the labels placed on each of us. Create a self-portrait collage of your truest identity, write a letter of courage to a stranger, and watch a collection of coming out stories from VideoOut as we connect through sharing and exploring our common narratives.

Chicago Sinfonietta and VideoOut - the largest library of coming out stories - invite all LGBTQ people and their allies to participate in this day-long effort to engage and amplify the voices of the LGBTQ community by recording their coming out stories in hopes that everyone will come out and, as Harvey Milk said, destroy the lies and distortions that surround the LGBTQ community.
