Allegra is known for the ablility to tailor its music to any event. Over the past 20 years we've gathered enough repertoire to play for literally dozens of hours -- we've written many of our favorite pieces to meet client requests. We can play music to create any atmosphere: elegant grandeur, intimate romance, light-hearted fun. Here is a small sampling:
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, etc;
Songs from films, like the Titanic theme, The Mission, The Sound of Music, The Lion King, etc;
Jazz greats like "Duke" Ellington and Lennie Niehaus, etc;
Many Beatles' tunes - Something, Here There and Everywhere, Hey Jude, When I'm Sixty Four, In My Life, etc
SPECIALTY MUSIC - We have a large Christmas book, a section of Western style fiddle tunes, enough music for a big Jewish wedding and reception, and music from many other traditions in all parts of the world.
If you're a small group, we have many pieces you can DANCE to. If you have a large group, we can add electronic keyboard to give you the extra rhythmic energy.
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, PLEASE ASK US ABOUT IT!
