The Luis D'Elias Large Ensemble, featuring a stellar cast of Berklee talent, will play a selection of original music blending traditional South American rhythms with contemporary jazz, classical music, and rock.
BUGLE (Berklee Union of Gays, Lesbians, and Everybody Else) is hosting a concert in celebration of National Coming Out Day. The concert features Berklee student performers who will open for our featured artist, the singer-songwriter Steve Grand, the first openly gay male country musician to attract mainstream attention in the United States. The music video of his first hit “All-American Boy” went viral on YouTube in less than a week, in July 2013. This attention landed Grand on Good Morning America, CNN, and other national media platforms. Buzzfeed ranked the video on its list of the 24 Most Brilliant Music Videos from 2013, and Out magazine named Grand to its annual “Out100” list of the year’s most compelling LGBT people. In addition to being a musician, Grand has become an active figure in the LGBT equality movement.
