Allegro means lively or cheerful in musical terms. Quartetto Allegro, a string quartet playing primarily in Portland and the greater metropolitan area, certainly lives up to its name when it delights audiences with the bright, spirited sounds of strings.

My wedding day… the beautiful sounds of strings drifting along the breeze calmed my spirits. This group played music that gave me goosebumps. Sitting in the sunshine listening to them brought thoughts of high teas and summer parties. Romantic or spirited, these talented musicians can play whatever your event calls for!

Playing selections of classical, popular and contemporary pieces, Quartetto Allegro has been entertaining listeners at events such as Portland’s Art In The Pearl, the Portland Art and Wine Festival, Legacy Emanuel’s “A Virtuoso Evening” (Diabetes Foundation benefit auction), weddings, brunches, anniversary dinners, awards banquets and other special events since 1997.
