Bisaccia will perform selections by Chopin and Gershwin in a program that celebrates freedom and equality.
Bisaccia and other artists were originally scheduled to play this month on October 24th at Carnegie Hall. However, the event was cancelled as one by one, artists backed out upon discovering that the event was sponsored by a Polish newspaper with ties to an ugly anti-LGBTQ campaign in Poland.
Upon discovering this, some members of Greenpoint Polish community reached out to Bisaccia to express support for him and the other artists. The conversations culminated with Bisaccia agreeing to perform in Greenpoint, a Brooklyn neighborhood with strong Polish ties and specifically, at St. John’s Lutheran Church, an official RIC congregation that offers a public space welcoming and affirming for LGBTQ community and led by Pastor Katrina Foster.
We hope this concert will honor the brave sacrifice made by these artists in forgoing a prestigious opportunity at Carnegie Hall. We hope this evening will support members of LGBTQ community in the USA and Poland with a powerful message that freedom and
equality are for all.
