Allegra

Allegra

One of Calgary's premier string quartets specializing in elegant music for upscale events. Weddings, cocktail music, Christmas favorites to name just a few. From Artists like Josh Groban, Shania, U-2, and more. A huge repertoire like the Love Song from Cure's Disintegration album.

Allegra is in great demand, giving about 100 performances a year with a flair that appeals to the sophisticated listener and a warmth and friendliness that draws even the most inexperienced ear.

Founding members Diane Valentine and Laurie Syer (violins), Theresa Plotnick (viola) and Dorothy Bishop (cello) have played together in concert hall, church, penthouse, and tent, on paddlewheeler and mountain top. We've played for heads of state, and we've played for friends. We've helped celebrate the openings of Calgary's major new venues, and the family events of our long-term clients.

Allegra's Repertoire - Here, then, are a few samples:

LIGHT CLASSICS - Water Music (Handel), the Seasons (Vivaldi), Brandenburg Concertos (Bach), Eine Kleine Nacht Musik (Mozart), Sleeping Beauty (Tchaikovsky), Blue Danube (Strauss), Hungarian Dances (Brahms), and of course the Pachelbel Canon in D "Allegra does an excellent job of the Canon" -Calgary Herald

POPULAR MUSIC STYLES - Broadway shows like My Fair Lady, Fiddler on the Roof, The Fantastiks; Songs from films, like the Titanic theme, The Sound of Music, The Lion King; Jazz greats like "Duke" Ellington and Lennie Niehaus; Many Beatles' tunes - Something, Here There and Everywhere, Hey Jude, When I'm Sixty Four

If you're a small group, we have many pieces you can DANCE to.

If someone special is singing at the wedding, ask us about writing a string quartet accompaniment.

REMEMBER, WE HAVE A LOT OF MUSIC, AND WE'RE ADDING MORE ALL THE TIME. IF YOU DON'T SEE WHAT YOU WANT, JUST ASK US ABOUT IT!
