COMING UP...
Every Voice Festival

For the third year running, Allegri has been successful in receiving funding from Derry City and Strabane District Council to manage a festival for local singers and the organising team have worked hard to engage local communities and offer dynamic singing experiences to choirs and singing groups in the region with the ethos that “every voice matters”.

 

An impressive lineup of guest facilitators who will host workshops with content tailored specifically for local amateur singers and choir leaders has already been announced. World renowned Norwegian music professor, clinician conductor and composer, Thomas Caplin, will deliver a workshop to benefit local choir leaders and conductors. Bespoke workshops for local singers relevant to background and experience are also being offered. Kuala Lumpur based Susanna Saw, whose work with young people is renowned throughout the choral world as being truly inspirational, will lead a workshop for those aged 8 to 14 and Tracy Wong, also from Malaysia but now based in Canada, will host an exciting session for adult singers.

 

There will also be newly recorded content from local choirs, live streamed performances and virtual concerts. All content will be free to view across a number of online platforms. Contact info@allegri.co.uk if you would like to be involved .

Every Voice Cloud Choir

We're absolutely delighted to present the Every Voice Cloud Choir's version of Jacob Naverud's 'Sisi Ni Moja' (We Are One). During the Covid-19 crisis, Allegri felt it was crucial for local singers to stay connected - to continue singing together while finding themselves physically apart. We brought together 160 singers representing 29 choirs for a series of online workshops as part of our inter-generational virtual choir project - Cloud Choir. This project has been supported by the Community Foundation for Northern Ireland through the Coronavirus Virus Fund.

A Cheerful Place

We had a fantastic evening in O'Neills Sportswear Factory for the launch of our commissioned piece, ‘A Cheerful Place’. It was a beautiful event in the last operating garment factory in Derry.  ‘A Cheerful Place’ was composed by Dr. Shane Lynch with lyrics from a poem by local poet Mícheál McCann. It celebrates and honours in song the women of our city and it's wonderful shirt-making heritage.
