“We love exploring repertoire together but sharing it with our audience is even more amazing! ”
Grace Ah-quee Conductor
Allegri Chamber Orchestra is a vibrant string ensemble working together to bring varied and emotive concerts to the community.
The orchestra values community engagement so is developing enrichment projects for both their loyal audience and very young music lovers in 2021 & 2022.
Members are advanced amateurs, instrumental teachers or freelance musicians.
Allegri concerts are a mix of wonderful string classical chamber orchestra music, quartets and sextets handpicked for each special concert. Other genres such as Tango and jazz style are added for their eclectic audience to enjoy.
The orchestra encourages soloists and involvement of wind players for variety and to create opportunities within Perth's music community.
The current Music Director Grace Ah-quee says "This is the perfect orchestra for players to explore their experience further and to warmly present musical gems to the audience".
