Coro Allegro to Premiere SATB version of the Frazin Oratorio
On March 13th, Coro Allegro will give the world premiere of Howard Frazin’s new SATB version of The Voice of Isaac. The oratorio retells the story of Abraham and Isaac through Isaac’s eyes. In the original SSA version, a children’s chorus sings the role of Isaac. However, in the new SATB version an adult chorus bolsters the children’s chorus as Isaac. Frazin explains that the added adult voices helps uncover the “expressive layers of vulnerability at the heart of Isaac’s story”. Coro Allegro will be joined by the Boston City Singers and the Toronto Children’s Chorus for the afternoon. Also on the program is Aaron Rosenthal’s Voices of Terezin. The program will begin at 3pm at the Sanders Theater in Cambridge, MA. To purchase tickets please follow the link to the Coro Allegro website.
