Allegro is a strings-only orchestra intended to provide students with valuable performance experience and an enrichment opportunity for developing orchestral technique. Students are expected to read music, be able to follow a conductor, and have a working knowledge of all strings and 1st position finger patterns. Approximate Suzuki or school orchestra book level 2 to 3 and up. Seating is rotated often, and is determined by what works best for the orchestra. No audition is required. A teacher recommendation, appropriate playing level,  and ability to focus for a 90 minute rehearsal are expected. Students should expect to spend time outside rehearsal practicing the music for Allegro.
