We Are

...the Allegría Ensemble, a chamber music group of adventurous professional musicians in the central Pennsylvania town of State College, home of Penn State University. We feature the Allegria String Quartet in concert and for wedding ceremony music, receptions, private events, and memorials. We also perform live music in trio or duo combinations to accommodate a range of budgets. Our repertoire ranges from early music, to classical music, contemporary music,  and, of course, wedding standards to pop tunes. We enjoy introducing new audiences of all ages to live classical music. Our musicians are members of the American Federation of Musicians, Local 660, Central PA Musicians Association.

As we manage the Covid situation, we continue to take reservations for future dates. We are respecting all Covid19 protocols that include masking, social distance, and a release option in case of illness.
