Co-Sponsored Event: “The (Musical) Spark in My Life”

John Fryer – disguised as Dr. Anonymous – urged doctors not to treat gays and lesbians as “sick.”  But there was another man behind that mask:  a devoted choir and organ master.  Be the first to hear a newly digitized recording found in his collection as we explore what church music meant to him and how it evolves as society and culture change. The Historical Society of Pennsylvania’s Embedded Artist Ain Gordon will also unveil a recording found in the Fryer collection.
