Why a queer choir? To make queer art.
Cor Flammae is a project by queer singers and conductors to explore unsung queer perspectives in classical choral music. We create choral music experiences for queer people, by queer people, and deepen the understanding of historical and modern queer experiences for everyone.
How does a rejection by mainstream society in a conservative genre impact art and career? How can we help queer music lovers and performers to feel welcome, encouraged, and invited to the choral music world, where they rarely see reflections of themselves or their journeys in popular writing and performance?
Cor Flammae seeks to answer these questions through the often marginalized lens of our shared life experiences as queer musicians.
