In a year when 350+ state bills have been filed to erode the rights of transgender and queer youth or silence discussion of LGBTQ+ topics in public schools, Coro Allegro, Boston’s LGBTQ+ and allied classical chorus, proudly presents Letters to Our Children: Voices across Generations for LGBTQ+ Youth, Sunday, November 6, 3 pm, at Old South Church, 645 Boylston St. Boston. The concert features the world premiere of award-winning composer Andrea Clearfield’s HERE I AM: I AM HERE, a powerful and timely cantata inspired by two moving open letters, to a transgender child and to a survivor of conversion therapy, by prominent LGBTQ+ youth advocates Mimi Lemay and Sam Brinton. Inspired by their letters, Coro Allegro and community partners invite the public to submit their own open letters of support for LGBTQ+ youth and their families through the Letters Project. Featuring Mimi Lemay and Sam Brinton as narrators, with guest soloists soprano Sonja DuToit Tenglad, tenor Jonas Budris, the Arneis String Quartet, and pianist Yulia Yun. The program also includes works by Ronald Perera and Norwegian composer Ola Gjello. For tickets, more information, and to submit letters to the Letters Project, visit: coroallegro.org
