A celebration of chosen families

Inspired by lyrics from the song “The Human Heart,” this is a concert that explores stories of loved ones establishing acceptance and love from their chosen families. The notion that we dream our dreams, we have our hopes, we choose our home, we chose our family, and we are part of the human heart is brought to life with songs from musicals including The Wiz, Mulan, and Once On This Island, along with songs performed in Spanish and Korean.

“The ones who came before you
The others yet to come
And those who you will teach it to
And those you learned it from”
(Lyrics from “The Human Heart”)
