The Queer Songbook Orchestra (QSO) is a Toronto-based 13-piece chamber pop ensemble, dedicated to exploring and uplifting 2SLGBTQ+ narrative in pop music. With the queer lens intact, they look through the last century of popular music and bring forward obscured 2SLGBTQ+ historical narratives, alongside the personal reflections from members of the community. A highly collaborative project, the QSO incorporate members of the local community to participate in every performance. From high school students to elders, and from well-known artists to novice performers, individuals are invited on stage to co-present these narratives, and to foster dialogue and nurture deepening community.
Proudly supported by Rosie Porter, Royal LePage Atlantic
