Join us SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 19, at 3pm as Coro Allegro's 2023-2024 Season kicks off with a reprise of Cantos Sagrados, a work both sacred and secular by Scottish composer James MacMillan. This powerful choral drama weaves poems by Argentian-Chilean and Guatemalan poets about conquest of indigenous people, political repression, and the "disappearance" of political prisoners, with the text of the Requiem mass. It is paired with Maurice Duruflé's exquisite and transcendent Requiem written after the suffering of World War II, which resonates with forgiveness, consolation, and eternal light.
Add an open message of support for LGBTQ+ youth to this powerful letter writing campaign. At a time when rights of transgender and other LGBTQ+ youth are under attack and LGBTQ+ forms of expression are being silenced, Coro Allegro, the Boston Alliance of GLBTQ+ Youth (BAGLY) and other community partners are gathering and sharing letters from the LGBTQ+ community and allies to support queer youth and their families, with the power of our collective voices. Learn about the moving letters to transgender kids and survivors of conversion therapy that inspired us and add your voice!
