Join us for this special performance, part of the Music Education Seminar series presented by the Music Education Department at the Don Wright Faculty of Music.

Who Am I? I Am What I Am
A Story Told through Broadway Music

Presented by Christopher Cayari, Perdue University

Who Am I? I Am What I Am is an hour long musical theater review that depicts LGBTQ+ characters in a performance you will not soon forget! Dr. Christopher Cayari (Purdue University), tell his story through music theater songs, original prose, and verse. As a K-12 music teacher, Christopher avoided the topic of sexuality in his classroom; he used to think that LGBTQ+ issues had no place in school. Join him as he shares his journey of acceptance, empowerment, and activism that began when he realized that portraying LGBTQ+ characters through song and on stage was not only appropriate for young people, but also necessary for the representation of this population. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and you’ll be entertained!

Songs from the musicals Rent, Bare: A Pop Opera, La Cage aux Folles, 13: The Musical, Altar Boyz, and 35mm: A Musical Exhibition.
