Tampa Bay – Una Voce’s evening of choral music Friday, June 12 at St. Petersburg’s Palladium, then reprised at Tampa’s new USF Concert Hall June 13, was brilliantly conceived and executed. The main event was the Florida premiere of famed Broadway composer Andrew Lippa’s I Am Harvey Milk. Milk, the first elected openly gay official in the country, is an iconic transformative figure for the LGBTQ community.
