FIVE TOUR PERFORMANCES of our 28th World Premiere


Claim your humanity. Another Black man is shot by a White police officer, and we ask what comes next? How do we heal? How do we protect our children?

A Gathering of Sons takes us on a journey through the lives of a young Black man, a White police officer, parents of a newborn child, and a collection of spirits who watch over the world. A confrontation with history and the way it breathes through the present, this poetic premiere is a conversation on our biases and how we heal after tragedy. It is an eye towards freedom and the work our communities need to do to reach it. Full of magic, fear, hope, pain, and, still, an even more powerful love.

A Gathering of Sons is the second new work in PFO’s “Music that Matters” series of commissioned works, which began with the development of A New Kind of Fallout (2015), inspired by the life and work of Pittsburgh-born scientist Rachel Carson.
