But I’d like to propose a new practice for my gay students and gay people everywhere: Stop coming out. Wednesday marks the 29th National Coming Out Day. In the 1980s, when many people did not know any openly gay people, ignorance and silence allowed homophobia to persist. Coming out was a form of activism — a way to challenge conventional ideas and fears by showing that gays and lesbians were a part of everyday life. Since 1988, this day has fostered a safer world for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people by raising awareness of the community. It continues to affirm our lives, worth and dignity.

The two-hour performance included music by eight composers, mixing well-known names such as Bach, Biber, Telemann and Muffat with a group of lesser-known lights that included Johann Schein, Johann Heinrich Schmelzer, Johann Pisendel and Joseph Umstatt. If the names were often unfamiliar, the results were mostly arresting; Wednesday’s performance, which marked the period instrument orchestra’s first appearance in Livermore, repeats Thursday at Stanford’s Bing Concert Hall, Friday at the SF Jazz Center in San Francisco and Saturday and Sunday at First Congregational Church in Berkeley.

“It’s fun.”. And intense, because while other groups, such as Napa Symphony or Sacramento Philharmonic — both of which Dieni has served — might have four or five rehearsals before a performance, Cal Pops usually just has one. And such music, in concerts Cal Pops Music Director Kim Venaas programs from audience requests, and also from fascinating old charts he has saved from forgotten warehouses. “Kim is actually preserving all kinds of music,” Dieni said. “There’s just tons of stuff in warehouses that is just going to get dumped. We save some of it.”.
