I was able to stop by rehearsal last night and took a quick pic of the group hard at work. We are only a few rehearsal in and they sound incredible! Each season the chorus sounds better, and better. This prep is no exception!
It's official, our new website has launched! We still have some minor fixes and additions we need to make but we are so excited to have our new site up and running. Take some time to check out all the stuff we have on here and check back often. We will do our best to make sure we always have new info, photos, and posts letting you know what Allegrezza is up to! A big thank you to Dr. Sandy Goldberg and Mr. Gregory Hines for their generous gift of funding our website for the year. Thank you and love to you both!!
Quite a few more rehearsals to go but this group sounds incredible. May be the best group we have had so far... can't wait for you all to hear them soon!
I have been traveling for work this past week and was not able to participate in the auditions for this prep. Stephen called and was beside himself with excitement... the talent that Allegrezza has been fortunate to receive continues to amaze us. We are so grateful, and SO excited for our upcoming concert, YOU MATTER!. More to come!
We are still coming down from the high we experienced during all of our performances for Ring Them Bells. First at the beautiful Chicago Temple in downtown Chicago. Secondly, at our home away from home in Hinsdale at the Union Church of Hinsdale. Lastly, a quick show for the folks shopping at the Christkindlmarket at Daley Plaza. An Amazing time all around and a great success for our Charitable Partner, A Silver Lining. Allegrezza will make a donation to this amazing organization for $1,500.00 thanks to our great turn out at each performance. Thank you to everyone that attended, it made our holiday that much brighter. Happy Holidays and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
What an incredible night with Dr. Sandy and the amazing people of A Silver Lining foundation. We are so happy to be partnering with them for our upcoming performance of Ring Them Bells! 20% of our proceeds will go to this incredible organization!!!
Auditions were completed last night and soon the 2017 Fall chorus members will be announced. We are so excited! Thank you to everyone that auditioned, we are always amazed at how many incredibly talented people are out there. We will announce the new chorus members soon!!!!
Summer in our city is incredible. It has been a great few months off and now we are back into the planning stages for our... wait for it.... holiday show! Yes, we are listening to holiday music in July. Our neighbors love us! LOL Really getting excited. As we know more, we will keep you in the loop of course. Have a wonderful rest of your summer season and cannot wait to see you all again soon!
What a fantastic few weekends for Allegrezza! We completed our latest concert Turn The World Around with great success and are still in a little bit of shock that it is done for the season. Here are a few great photos from the performances. We are gearing up for our summer cabaret show with more details to follow!!
As part of our mission, Allegrezza partners with area charities and not-for-profit organizations to support with a donation at the end of each performance series. As we have done since our start, Allegrezza has chosen BUILD Chicago as our charity partner and are excited to support this amazing group of people.
20% of all proceeds from our concert series Turn The World Around will go to BUILD Chicago to support them in their mission to engage at-risk youth in the schools and on the streets, so they can realize their educational and career potential and contribute to the stability, safety and well-being of our communities.
Once again, it was an amazing night last night for all of us. For the final performance with the fantastic Chicago Sinfonietta, Allegrezza performed at Orchestra Hall. It was a night we will always remember!
Last night Allegrezza performed with the Chicago Sinfonietta, and it was incredible!! Such a wonderful night and so proud of our group for everything they are doing right now!! There is one more concert on Monday night at Symphony Hall at 7:30 PM. Don't miss it!!
This evening the chorus will perform for the first time with an orchestra! We are so excited to perform with the Chicago Sinfonietta in Naperville and Wentz Concert Hall. Will post pictures when it is all done. To all the singers and musicians, have a wonderful time!!
