Allegria Ensemble performs in State College and the Central PA region. The Allegria String Quartet is our featured ensemble, but you've also heard us in other combinations for casual events and in concert. All our musicians are active professionals with the American Federation of Musicians.
Live Wedding Ceremony and Event Music
Let us add a polished touch to your wedding ceremony music or other special occasion. Our repertoire ranges from classical to popular music including Cole Porter and Metallica. See what our clients have to say. We are currently booking dates into next year. Contact us for details about how to book your event.
If you'd like to hear us in an informal setting, the quartet will be playing at the Nittany Weddings Showcase on Sunday, October 23, 2017 from 11-2 at Toftrees Resort in State College, PA.
Educational Outreach Programs
Our program is called "How to Listen to Classical Music: What to Know to Enjoy the Show." Using many short pieces to introduce a variety of musical styles spanning 400 years, and active audience participation, these are lively performances. Grants from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts and the Music Performance Trust Fund support our passion for nurturing new audiences. Watch how we work with the students at a performance at Houserville Elementary School.
