Allegretto is an elite ensemble of highly talented high school musicians, chosen by audition. The group not only gives young players a chance to perform the great orchestral works; they also experience a joyful, collaborative learning environment. Unique to Allegretto is its coaching approach with the Allegro professionals participating in selected rehearsals and joining the youth in concerts. Since the inaugural concert in 2009, Allegretto’s gifted musicians have demonstrated their range by performing works by Mozart, Beethoven, Haydn, Copland, Gershwin, Prokofiev, Stravinsky and many others.
