As a private, not-for-profit organization, Allegro Orchestra Lancaster seeks support from individuals, groups and companies who love music and their community. Our performances are possible only through your generous support!

Did You Know?
Children Can Attend Our Concerts for FREE

We want to instill a love for classical music in generations to come, so children under the age of 18 can attend our concerts for free(!) with a paying adult. We like to think of it like this … instead of a family night out at the movies, how about a family night out at a LIVE music performance!

We're a Completely Volunteer Run Organization

That’s right, we’re a 100% volunteer run organization! Our dedicated Board members and concert volunteers make ALL of this happen. From selecting the repertoire and season dates, to hiring and rehearsing the music, to ticket sales, event promotion and performances, we have an incredible team of supporters who donate their time and talents to Allegro.

Affordable Ticket Prices Are Important to Us

An average ticket price to our concerts is just $25! Our mission is to make classical music accessible, and keeping ticket prices low is just one of the many ways we do that. Artistic salaries and facility rentals are expensive though, so we fundraise to offset our costs, keep our budget balanced and our financials healthy.


"All the musicians of Allegro and [its] fine conducting make beautiful music come alive!"

Jean & Richard Vieth

"It's great having [Brian] speak and enlighten the audience that might not be as knowledgeable as the performers on stage."

Carol Anspach

"Not a classical music fan, historically, but I’m a big Allegro fan now!"

Amy Banks
