Review: "Deep and Profound along the Charles"
"The evening importantly featured not only [the Boston Landmarks Orchestra}, but also the] One City Choir under the talented David F. Coleman ....and Coro Allegro ― Boston’s LGBTQ+ and allied classical chorus ― with its artistic director, David Hodgkins"
A gem, [featuring Coro Allegro and conducted by David Hodgkins was] the final movement of Fred Onovwerosuoke’s (2016) A Triptych of American Voices: A Cantata of the People―We NEED to TALK—featuring soloists Tai Oney, countertenor and Jonas Budris, tenor, plus chorus and orchestra. This setting of the late Michael Castro’s poem, which closed the first half, combines hope, freedom, justice and joy—all evident in the sound and faces of the soloists and choristers."
