ChamberQUEER, an LGBTQ+ chamber music series based in Brooklyn, NY, announces its inaugural digital season.

Entitled ChamberQUEERantine: A Digital Pride Month Festival!, it will feature virtual presentations by performers within the LGBTQ+ classical music community, and highlight the music of queer composers, past and present, as well as provide an intersectional and inclusive queer space in the digital sphere.

Presentations will be aired nightly at 7 PM EDT on ChamberQUEER’s Facebook channel, where they will be archived. The repository will be available in perpetuity on Youtube and via the group’s website from July 2020.

“While we’ve had to cancel our second annual in-person festival this June, we’ve decided to create a virtual one instead, celebrating the amazing legacy and resilience of queer artists persisting in the face of adversity,” said co-founder Brian Mummert.

The entire proceeds of the festival will be returned to the artists presenting the content, in order to support their livelihood, which has been severely affected by the ramifications of COVID-19. As such, ChamberQUEER is launching a fundraising campaign to maximize their impact.

Information about the festival and funding campaign is available online via www.chamberqueerantine.org.

======= About the Artists

ChamberQUEER was founded in 2018 by Jules Biber, Danielle Buonaiuto, Brian Mummert, and Andrew Yee, with a mission to program queer artists and composers; highlight historically under-represented queer figures in classical music; and provide an inclusive and intersectional space in classical music for artists and audience alike.

ChamberQUEER launched with a workshop performance at Branded Saloon, in Brooklyn, NY, in February 2018. Its first major event was ChamberQUEER 2019, a three-day festival at BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange and Branded Saloon in June 2019.

In addition to the flagship concert series, now held annually in Brooklyn in June during Pride, ChamberQUEER hosts community events such as reading parties and house concerts, and will soon expand to provide education and mentorship to emerging queer performers and composers.

“I have been waiting for something like this for twenty years,” commented one audience member. “It feels like the right time for an organization to create an inclusive space for queer musicians to form community.”

ChamberQUEER is a recipient of the Brooklyn Arts Fund (BAF) cultural grant. Brooklyn Arts Fund (DCLA) is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by Brooklyn Arts Council (BAC).
