The Allegría Ensemble is a chamber music group of five adventurous professional musicians based in State College, PA, home of Penn State University in central Pennsylvania. Featuring the Allegria String Quartet, we also perform in other combinations that include oboe and English horn. Our repertoire ranges from baroque and classical to pop songs, jazz, and ragtime. Our musicians are available for hire for wedding ceremony music at traditional and non-tradition ceremonies. We also play for receptions, private parties, memorials, and concert performances in homes, country clubs, wineries, gardens, parks, and resorts.
In spring 2018 our educational programs are supported in part by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.
Grant support also comes from the Music Performance Trust Fund for free public concerts.

We love to share our passion for music with new listeners. We did several performances this Spring 2018 for children with Penn's Woods Music 4 Kids and adult events called Penn's Woods Music 4 U. We also perform in the festival orchestra and chamber music concerts at the Penn's Woods Music Festival.
