WHO WE ARE
Allegrissimo is a philanthropic organization, composed of voluntary singers who use their voices as an instrument to spread a message of love, hope and joy to people residing in institutional care centers.
Why “Allegrissimo” ?
Of italian origin, it’s an expression from the musical world that means very fast, very happy and lively.
Allegrissimo was created with the objective to making visits and singing choral music in hospitals, retirement homes, orphanages, homeless shelters, and any other institution that accommodates a population in need of care and reception. Our mission is to improve quality of life and bring comfort, joy and love to the most vulnerable through our singing.
“Good music is not mistaken, and goes straight to the bottom of the soul to seek the sorrow that devours us.”
(Stendhal, French writer)
“Music therapy distracts from physical pain thanks to its ability to block pain messages, and also changes the perception of pain by improving overall mood.”
(Rachael Finnerty, Psychotherapist and music therapist)
