Join the South Coast Chorale, in collaboration with the First Congregational Church Sanctuary Choir, Landmark Theatre Company, Musique Sur La Mer Orchestra, Long Beach Youth Chorus, and members of the Wilson High School Choir as we share the unheard voices of the fence, the deer, the stars, and more in this musical narrative that, 25 years later, still resonates far beyond the LGBTQ+ community.
