Allegria Ensemble

Live Classical Music for your Special Event


Based in State College, PA, our seven musicians perform all over the Centre county and central Pennsylvania.  Hear us live in concert and at school programs.  We are available as musicians for hire for wedding ceremony music, receptions, and other private and public events.  For casual engagements we offer solo, duo, trio, string quartet and other combinations to provide music to suit any occasion or budget. 

News flash:  we had a cancellation for a June wedding and have a few open dates for Saturday weddings through August.  Contact us soon if you are still looking for musicians.

The Allegria String Quartet made its debut in 2015 at the Big Springs Spirits tasting room in Bellefonte. We perform a wide variety of musical styles from classical to pop to jazz and are especially interested in new collaborations. Listen to some excerpts here. Our next public event is for the Pennsylvania Centre Orchestra at Seven Mountains Winery on July 25, 2015.

The Allegria Trio of flute, violin, and cello also has an extensive repertoire. Listen here to trio excerpts from our performances. The trio performs outreach programs introducing new audiences to classical music.  We receive support from the PA Council on the Arts and from the Music Performance Trust Fund to perform in Centre County schools each spring.
