Peninsula AIDS Memorial Grove
The contemplative space designed by nature is dedicated to the memory of those who have courageously fought their battle with AIDS, and in honor of all those whose lives have been affected by AIDS. A plaque at the grove remembers and honors almost two dozen people that died of AIDS. Of the plaques with dates, most were men that died between the years 1992 and 1996. If they lived, they would be in their 50's today.
Tonight we are seeing the San Francisco Gay Men's Chorus 30th anniversary concert. They are premiering "New World Waking!" by Steve Schalchlin. Special Guests include Jennifer Holliday, Kim Kuzma, Piper Laurie, and the Community Women's Orchestra.
UPDATE: Somewhere downstairs on the main floor of Davies Symphony Hall was blogger Joe.My.God. We didn't get to see or meet him. He inspired one of the movements of "New Wrold Waking!"
