We are the only organization in Montreal to offer free concerts to the public without any public funding. We have thrived for 40 years, but this year presents a unique challenge. The inability to hold our annual fundraiser in-person threatens the future of Allegra Chamber Music, as well as its children’s concert series Bach Before Bedtime. Our hope is that by offering music to a larger, worldwide audience virtually, we will garner a large number of donors who are able to give small sums.
Allegra Chamber Music was founded forty years ago as a grassroots, not-for-profit organization to provide free chamber music concerts to all Montrealers by Artistic Director Dorothy Fieldman Fraiberg. To this day, Fieldman Fraiberg has remained ardent in her effort to make music accessible to every individual. Allegra’s goal is to nurture a lifelong appreciation of chamber music through citywide outreach to unite Montreal's finest chamber musicians with a vibrant, diverse, and multi-generational audience. Our Concerts are made possible through the generosity of our sponsors and friends, as well as from funds raised through our Annual Gala Concert.
Eleven years ago, Fieldman Fraiberg launched Bach Before Bedtime (BBB), a series of concerts which introduces young children to a fun, interactive, and sensory-stimulating experience. BBB’s mission is to expose children and their families to the world of classical music through hands-on, interactive concerts, breaking down the barrier between the audience and the performers for a shared, communal experience. BBB programming is subsidized by donors like you. We provide free concerts to underserved communities, making BBB accessible to all. This season, BBB & Allegra will continue to provide concerts virtually.
In these unique times do what you can to enhance your well-being. Allegra & Bach Before Bedtime bring you the joy of wonderful, intimate chamber music. Feed your heart and soothe your soul with music.
Embrace Music. Embrace Bach Before Bedtime. Embrace Allegra. Donate now.
