What an experience! Recently Lancaster’s fine purveyors of “Swampadelic Sound”, The Willie Marble Xperience featuring the World Famous Marblelettes, performed at TELLUS 360, 24 East King Street, Lancaster. 100% of the ticket sales were donated to Allegro. Many thanks to all who came to support Lancaster’s own chamber orchestra!
The concert was coordinated along with Music For Everyone, with the goal of using great local music as a means for helping the great local organizations hard at work in our community to get some extra exposure. Violinist Christopher Brooks, trumpeter Doug Albert and flutist Morgann Davis from Allegro joined in on several songs. In the best tradition of shaky cell phone videos of live music, check out this clip of one of Doug Albert’s solos!
Allegro means joyful … fast and lively … a different musical experience …
We invite you to experience the joy of Allegro! Allegro brings the music to life through concerts that are specially designed to be engaging, enjoyable and fun. Our musicians clearly love what they are doing. The players mingle with the audience before concerts, during intermission and after performances.
Allegro‘s conductor, Brian Norcross, is well known throughout the region for his superb musicianship, positive focus, and unique ability to relate to audiences. His sharing of anecdotes about the composers and their work increases everyone’s understanding and appreciation of the complexities of the music.
