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.
