Event description

Description

Last March, I was sifting through Facebook and came across a video of a choir performing Jake Runestad’s “Please Stay”. Halfway through the video, I couldn’t stop the tears streaming down my face. The song tackles the subject of suicide revealing the beauty that each person has within and implores those struggling with suicidal thoughts to reach out, to stay, to realize their amazing worth. I knew then that we must, as Allegrezza’s mission statement states, celebrate all people for who they are. Our upcoming concert, “You Matter: A Celebration of Life” does just that. The music in the concert celebrates the joy of living, emphasizes the beauty of life and living in community, and explores, and implores us to stand together and build each other up. Please join us on this passionate, exciting, and uplifting celebration of life.

The music ranges from the contemporary works of Ola Gjeilo, Jake Runestad, Craig Hella Johnson, and Z. Randall Stroope, as well as several pop and musical theater pieces. And, we are really excited about performing several African pieces.

We are excited to have you join us for an amazing evening with Allegrezza!

Stephen C Edwards, Artistic Director & Co-Founder / Allegrezza
