The Memorial Tribute for John Stahle

Mark your calendars!  I’ve been busy organizing the memorial tribute for John Stahle and have some details to share:

WHEN:       Saturday, September 18th, 2:30 p.m.

WHERE:     The Lerner Auditorium (Room 301) at The LGBT Center, 208 West 13th Street, New York, NY 10011

We’ve had a suggestion that Schubert’s “Ganymed D544” be performed.  The song is based on the Goethe poem (click here for the original German text and a translation; the audio posted below).  If a pianist and singer would like to volunteer to perform, let me know.

As for the program, if you have other ideas, or are interested in participating, please email me: m@matthewhittinger.com.

One Response to The Memorial Tribute for John Stahle

  1. Bryan Borland says:

    We’d like to honor John’s memory by producing a tribute publication titled Ganymede Unfinished. This publication would include several Ganymede layouts John designed in advance, but we need your help to fill the rest of the publication.

    If you were impacted by John’s love of culture, art, the written word, and the promotion of artistic talent within the gay community, please consider contributing to Ganymede Unfinished with whatever photographs, poems, essays, short stories, etc. you feel would be appropriate to honor John’s vision.

    If you would like to participate, please email your contribution along with a brief bio to introduce your work to bryan.borland@gmail.com. You will retain rights and ownership of your contribution. We hope to have the publication finished by the end of July to ensure that is ready in time for John’s September memorial. Therefore, the deadline for contributions must be set relatively soon. Please submit your contribution and bio by July 10, 2010 if you would like to be included. Please also attach a photograph of yourself, the cutest one you’ve got, as John would say.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

    – Bryan
