Voices reach out across generations in a newly commissioned work by award-winning composer, Andrea Clearfield, based on true stories and moving open letters by leading LGBTQ+ youth advocates Mimi Lemay and Sam Brinton.

With record numbers of state bills filed to erode the rights of transgender youth and their family and to silence discussion of LGBTQ+ topics in schools, we invite you to join us as we raise our voices in this powerful and timely work, commissioned by Coro Allegro singers and Robin Godfrey of GALA Choruses.

Clearfield work is paired with New England composer Ronald Perera’s beautifully crafted setting of poems on music by Walter de la Mare, Percy Bysshe Shelley, and Emily Dickinson, as well as contemporary Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo’s soaring setting of 16th-century mystic St. John of the Cross and contemporary writer Charles Anthony Silvestri.

Coro Allegro is Boston’s LGBTQ+ and allied classical chorus.
