Allegro!!! is an elite string performance ensemble of the Western Springs School of Talent Education and the Naperville Suzuki School. An inventive and eclectic mix of music, dance, and video, Allegro!!! has been dazzling audiences in Chicago and beyond for nearly 20 years. Allegro!!! has performed at countless local events and also participated by invitation in recent performances for the National Suzuki Association of the Americas Biennial Conference in Minneapolis, MN and the American String Teachers Association National Conference in Atlanta, GA.
As a result of their performance at the American String Teacher Association's conference last March, the group was invited by Dean Marshall, Artistic Director of the world renowned phenomenon “Barrage”, to take part in a two week concert tour of China this summer. This trip will be a once in a lifetime opportunity for the students. Allegro!!! will be performing in the largest concert venues in Beijing, Hushou, Hangshou, Ningbo, and Shanghai. In addition to their concert performances, they will have the opportunity to experience Chinese culture and visit many of the country's most famous cultural and historic sites. This year's spring concert on May 11th will serve as benefit to support this upcoming trip.
