Acclaimed by the San Francisco Chronicle for her “fervid but impeccably controlled” performances, pianist Allegra Chapman is driven by her passion for connecting audiences with historically overlooked and living composers. With a wide-ranging repertoire of music from Bach to Ligeti, she maintains a busy concert schedule as soloist and chamber musician. Allegra is currently a member of Left Coast Chamber Ensemble, San Francisco Contemporary Music Players, and Chordless duo with soprano Sara LeMesh. She has performed internationally at venues including Cal Performances, Alice Tully Hall, San Francisco Jazz Center, and Xi’an Concert Hall. In 2023, her duo Chordless won First Prize in the Federation of the Art Song Fellowship Competition in New York. From 2020-2023, Allegra was the pianist of the Delphi Trio with violinist Liana Bérubé and cellist Tanya Tomkins. With Delphi and the San Jose Chamber Orchestra, Allegra premiered Grammy-nominated composer Clarice Assad’s triple concerto, A Tale of Mermaids. From 2017-2020, Allegra was the founding co-artistic director and executive director of the critically acclaimed festival Bard Music West, a San Francisco-based branch of the Bard Music Festival that explored the worlds of composers from the past 100 years. Allegra is a graduate of the Bard Conservatory of Music and The Juilliard School. She is on faculty at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music’s Pre-College division and makes her home in San Francisco with her husband, rescue dog, and nearly 1000 books.
