Review: "America/We Need to Talk"
"As with Still’s choruses, Onovwerosuoke’s two soloists of separate ethnicities look past their superficial differences, turning toward each other while singing, to suggest their willingness to begin vital dialogue. Indeed, the poem’s thrice-repeated line [We Need to Talk] is the title of the entire piece. While it seems infuriating to have to reiterate these assertions in 2019, we can be thankful that all the accomplished artists in this concert are plainly committed to doing so for as long as necessary. Though Coro Allegro, Heritage Chorale of New Haven, and their directors will likely occupy a political niche for years to come, their high musical standards ensure that general audiences will flock to hear them at least as often for artistic reasons. Long may they prosper!" —Geoffrey, Wieting, The Boston Musical Intelligencer
