Join Coro Allegro, Boston’s award-winning LGBTQ+ and allied classical chorus, for Rachmaninoff/Liturgy, Sunday, June 2, 2019 at 3pm at the Church of the Covenant, 67 Newbury Street, Boston. Artistic Director David Hodgkins leads what critics hail as “Coro Allegro’s stunning interpretation” of Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, Opus 31, a work of “spiritually boundless reverence...profoundly transmitted...to a deeply grateful audience” (Boston Musical Intelligencer). Experience a luminous a cappella masterwork of limitless invention, based on ancient chant. Taras Leschishin sings the role of Celebrant and Alexander Prokhorov that of the Deacon. Rachmaninoff doesn’t just set the words of the Liturgy, he brings the ritual radiantly to life. Hear the congregation intoning prayers, the surging procession of priests, the stamp of folksong, and the great, ringing peal of bells. Tickets, starting at $25 with significant discounts for seniors, students, and community groups, are available at coroallegro.org.
