World AIDS DAY Concert in Phoenix, December 1, 2019
(October 11, 2019) – Joshua Tree Feeding Program will host a World AIDS Day Concert on Sunday, December 1st at the Parsons Center in central Phoenix. This performance features songs by and about people facing HIV and related struggles, triumphs, stigmas, medical treatments, grief, and survivorship throughout the 37-year history of AIDS.
The World AIDS Day Concert features music of the AIDS Quilt Songbook – an ongoing, national collaborative song cycle that debuted at Lincoln Center in 1992 with 18 songs about the current experiences of people living and dying with HIV/AIDS. The Songbook was conceived as a classical music project parallel to the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt. Many songs have been added to the collection since the first 18 songs premiered in the 1990s. The December performance includes songs from original songbook, plus many newer compositions that reflect the changing face of HIV over the decades and around the world.
The concert takes place in conjunction with a display of panels from the NAMES Project AIDS Memorial Quilt, and is the launch event to a week of World AIDS Day commemorations, including the Phoenix AIDS Candlelight Vigil.
