STATE COLLEGE August 23, 2019 -- Allegria Ensemble has been selected for the 2019 Best of State College Award in the Musician category by the State College Award Program.
Each year, the State College Award Program identifies companies that we believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and our community. These exceptional companies help make the State College area a great place to live, work and play.
Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2019 State College Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the State College Award Program and data provided by third parties.
