The Allegría Ensemble is a chamber music group of 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 trio and duo 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, receptions, dinners, memorials, and other special events. Traditional or non-traditional ceremonies, indoors or outdoors, we perform in gardens, parks, resorts, homes, country clubs, wineries, and religious houses.
We are dedicated to sharing our passion for live music to new listeners. We perform and explain our music to audiences of all ages and experiences.
Grant support from the Music Performance Trust Fund supports our free public concerts.
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.
