NYFOS Artistic Director Steven Blier, pianist, leads a stellar quartet of vocalists in this celebrated musical portrait of life, love and loss in the world of gay men. With music spanning the course of two centuries, the program features works ranging from Schubert's "Der Gondelfahrer" to John Wallowitch's "Bruce", with songs by Poulenc, Tchaikovsky, Griffes, Bernstein, Porter, Blitzstein and more. Anthony Tommasini wrote in The New York Times about "Manning the Canon": "Such programs can easily fall into the trap of social politics and turn maudlin, agenda driven and campy. This one was insightful and imaginative, touching and funny."
