WE ARE 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.
Grant support also comes from the Music Performance Trust Fund for free public concerts.
HEAR US LIVE at the Central PA Bridal Expo on January 20, 2019.
We love to share our passion for music with new listeners. In 2019 we'll be performing in May and June at Discovery Space, Schlow Library, Centre County Library in Bellefonte, and Holt Library in Phillipsburg for the Penn's Woods Music 4 Kids. For adults we have an event scheduled at the Bellefonte Art Museum called "Ask the Musicians".
Allegría Ensemble outreach concerts 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.
