A Season of Exceptional Musical Experiences
Over the past quarter century, Coro Allegro has earned a reputation for taking artistic risks by presenting contemporary works that often grapple with the most complex issues of our time, paired with insightful performances of classic repertoire. This season showcases the commitment, attention to detail, and virtuosity that have become our hallmark.
Rejoicings and Retrospectives
We celebrate with a retrospective of works spanning the breadth of our 25-year history, from the joyous Bach settings of the opening to the Alleluias that frame the finale. In between, we mark the 10th anniversary of the Daniel Pinkham Award, which recognizes outstanding contributors to classical choral music and the LGBT community.
Discoveries and Surprises
Enjoy four premieres and five works commissioned from the many composers who have inspired us, performances featuring some of the consummate musicians we have partnered with, and an alumni reunion in May with festivities and an encore for Coro singers past and present.
Celebration and Community
I want to thank you, our faithful audience and ardent supporters for being with us throughout this remarkable journey. This coming season, filled with so much beautiful music, is your accomplishment as much as ours. Please join us as Coro Allegro looks back at an extraordinary past, and leaps into a promising future. I can’t wait to see what the next 25 years will bring!
David Hodgkins, Artistic Director
