    Founded in 1990, Coro Allegro is a chorus for members, friends, and allies of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities that strengthens and enriches the lives of its members and the greater Boston community through its performances of outstanding classical choral repertoire and recordings. It is dedicated to its mission to provide broad audiences access to choral music, perform works by diverse composers, serve as a model of a successful and valued lgbt community group through artistic excellence and visibility, and create an affirming, welcoming, and supportive environment for its membership.

    Each year Coro Allegro offers a subscription series that includes two concerts at The Church of the Covenant and one concert at Sanders Theater at Harvard University. Coro Allegro also reaches national and international audiences through broadcasts on WGBH “Classical Performances,” and performances at the Gay and Lesbian Association of Choruses Festivals and the Eastern Division Convention of the American Choral Directors Association.

    In 2008, Coro Allegro established the Daniel Pinkham Award in memory of the late Boston composer and conductor. The award is given annually in recognition of outstanding contributions to classical music and the lgbt community. Previous award recipients are baritone Sanford Sylvan (2008), Bishop Gene Robinson (2009), flutist Fenwick Smith (2010), composer Patricia Van Ness (2011), conductor Donald Teeters (2012), and Coro Allegro’s own artistic director David Hodgkins (2013).

    An advocate of contemporary music, Coro Allegro received the prestigious Chorus America/ascap Alice Parker Award in 2012 for its world premiere performance of Kareen Roustom’s The Son of Man. This award recognizes a chorus for programming recently-composed music that expands the mission of the chorus and challenges the chorus’s audience in new ways.

    Coro Allegro has released four critically acclaimed commercial recordings: In Paradisum and Awakenings on the Navona Records label, as well as In the Clearing and somewhere i have never traveled.
