Including songs on the jukebox at the Stonewall and Gabriel Fauré's gorgeous “Requiem,” the Black Tulip Chorale celebrates the continuing journey towards justice, freedom, and equality. This performance is free to the public." The performance takes place at First Presbyterian Church of Kirkwood, 100 E. Adams in Kirkwood, MO.
