David Cutler GALA Scholarship Fund


DavidCutler.jpgEvery four years since 1996 Coro Allegro has performed at the GALA Choruses Festival, which is held in different host cities around North America. As one of the few mixed choruses at the festival, Coro Allegro represents our community by showcasing its unique programming and professional sound to the thousands of members of the international LGBTQ+ choral community who attend the festival.

For the 2024 Festival to be held in Minneapolis, Coro Allegro was selected to be one of only seven choruses performing a long form “Coffee Concert.” Along with other works, the program includes Andrea Clearfield’s “I AM HERE: HERE I AM.” This piece is a powerful cantata that draws upon the experience of a mother and her transgender child and depictions of conversion therapy.

The David J. Cutler GALA Scholarship Fund was designed to provide financial support to singing members, hired musicians or staff who could not otherwise afford to attend the GALA Festival. We thank our founder and first president, David J. Cutler, who has seeded this fund with a generous donation. We hope that you will consider making a gift to the fund to help us make our trip to the 2024 Festival a success.
