The White Raven: 10th Anniversary Pinkham Award Concert

SUNDAY, MARCH 12, 2017, 3PM
Sanders Theatre, Cambridge

We celebrate the legacy of acclaimed Boston LGBT composer Daniel Pinkham, with The White Raven, his soaring tribute to the exceptional. Originally commissioned for Coro Allegro’s 5th Anniversary, Pinkham's setting of Christopher Smart's texts celebrating the diversity of creation is paired with the vocal fireworks of Haydn’s inspiring Missa in Angustiis (Mass for troubled times) or “Lord Nelson” Mass. On the occasion of our 25th year, we also shine a spotlight on the contributions of our extraordinary Accompanist, Darryl Hollister with a world premiere of a work by African composer Fred Onovwerosuoke, commissioned in his honor.
