Please see our Audio page for musical selections.
Since 1992 Allegra Strings in Kingston provided live music for weddings, corporate events and all types of occasions. Now regrouped in the Peterborough to Huntsville area, Allegra performs original music by Vivaldi, Handel, Haydn, as well as Mozart and Beethoven string quartets. Arrangements of Strauss waltzes, South American tangos, movie, musical theater and sacred songs are favorites too!
While based in Kingston, Allegra Strings catered Grand Openings of the Cineplex Theatre, Indigo Books and Music, Canada Day and WinterFest and many weddings in the larger area! Some wedding planners asked for Medieval dress, some for early 19th Century Canadian costume. Queens University students have graduated and celebrated to Allegra Strings. The group performed a CBC afternoon radio program, played for musical theater shows, for new bank openings, with folk musicians, for special Board meetings, and in many Baroque concerts including a yearly Handel’s Messiah with David Cameron and his choir! Allegra Strings is now working in Peterborough and in the towns and cities nearby. They will travel with pleasure to Colborne, Port Hope, Oshawa, Norwood, Lakefield, Bancroft, Huntsville, Bracebridge, and all the towns in between!
