Coro Allegro will perform a kaleidoscopic world premiere by Fred Onovwerosuoke that shines light on America through the prisms of three great poems: Paul Laurence Dunbar's "Sympathy" ("I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings"), Langston Hughes' "As I Grew Older,” and Michael Castro's "We Need to Talk."

The Heritage Chorale of New Haven will join to celebrate the 20th anniversary of its historical collaboration with Coro Allegro of LGBTQ+ and African American choruses on a work by William Grant Still to mark the opening of the National Memorial for Peace and Justice.

Also on the program is Onovwerosuoke’s Caprice for piano and orchestra, commissioned by Coro Allegro in 2016 for pianist Darryl Hollister.

Soloists include countertenor Tai Oney, lauded by the Opera News for the "richness and pliability of his [voice];" tenor Jonathan Budris, praised by The Boston Globe as "bright and intense;" and the "powerfully affecting...ravishing and lush" mezzo soprano Sylvia V. C. Twine; with baritone Ron Williams as narrator.

The 12th Annual Daniel Pinkham Award will be presented to Darryl Hollister, champion of African and African American composers and Coro Allegro’s beloved accompanist from 1993-2018.
