Composer-in-Residence Gabriel Kahane’s Emergency Shelter Intake Form will feature Alicia Hall Moran, who made her Broadway debut in Porgy and Bess, starring as Bess, and a choir of members from the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida. Kahane’s piece shines an essential light on our society through music that will inspire, bring hope, and stir the soul.
