Allegra Strings is an entertainment classical string ensemble. Our players are accomplished and engaging, ready to play for your occasion. We cater without the need to set up electrical equipment, adding good energy and a wide variety of music for weddings, receptions, corporate events and graduation ceremonies!
Please see our Audio page for a few musical selections played by an early ensemble of Allegra musicians.
Since 1991 Allegra Strings has provided live music for weddings, corporate events and all types of occasions. Allegra performs arranged and original music by Vivaldi, Handel, Haydn, Mozart and early Baroque string music. Arrangements of Strauss waltzes, South American tangos, movie, musical theater and sacred songs are favorites too!
From its beginning Allegra Strings has catered Grand Openings for the Cineplex Theatre, Indigo Books and Music, also Canada Day, WinterFest and many weddings and concerts in the larger area! Some wedding planners have asked for Medieval dress, some for early 19th Century Canadian Settlers! The group performed a CBC afternoon radio program, played for musical theater shows, for new bank openings, and even with folk musicians in a special event concert. For several years Allegra played a yearly Handel’s Messiah with David Cameron and his choir! Allegra Strings will travel with pleasure West to Port Hope and Peterborough, North to Sharbot Lake and Perth and East to Gananoque.
