Merryall Center Kicks off its Celebration of Pride Month with a  Performance by World Renown Singer and Songwriter Namoli Brennet  

Taking center stage for the second year in a row, Namoli Brennet triumphantly returns to the Merryall stage at 8 P.M. on Friday,  June 3rd. The month-long celebration is presented in collaboration with Q+Social with funding provided by a grant from the Connecticut Community Foundation’s Pride in the Hills Fund. 


After touring Europe and the States for over a decade, the trans singer and  songwriter is back and Connecticut’s Merryall has her. A four-time Outmusic  award nominee, Brennet’s music has been featured in The Advocate, on NPR as  well as in the Emmy award-winning documentary Out in the Silence. Her work  has also been spotlighted on where works by superstars Nicki Minaj,  Ariana Grande, and Tegan and Sara have been showcased. Her latest album, The  Poet Tree, is in production and soon to be released. 


Says Merryall Executive Director Dean Gray.” We are thrilled to welcome  Namoli back to Connecticut. She is one of those special performers who  incorporates unique experiences into her show…so don’t expect the typical instead  be delighted and surprised by her vocal and musical poetry and passion.” 


Brennet will be the first of a trilogy of artists performing in the Merryall Pride  2023 Festival hosted by the Merryall Center and sponsored by a grant from the  Connecticut Community Foundation’s Pride in the Hills Fund. The scheduled  performance dates for these artists can be found on the Merryall Center website——along with the full list of Merryall’s upcoming events for  Pride Month and the season ahead.
