Sappho, the poet of Ancient Greece, proclaimed "Love has the sun's splendor and beauty," and in June, we feel the same: what could be more lovely and splendiferous than sunny Chicago during Pride Month! We're celebrating over 15 years of musical fabulousness with our GAY-LA GRAND FINALE featuring "America's Classical Music" – Jazz. Wave your rainbow flags and snap your fingers to toe-tapping, ear-catching music by such LGBT composers and recording artists as Cole Porter, Billy Strayhorn, and Leonard Bernstein.
