Allegra! Women's Ensemble

Allegra!, a 16-voice women’s ensemble, will present performances of “Songs of Home” this weekend in Easton and Oxford.

EASTON — Allegra!, a 16-voice women’s ensemble, will present two performances of “Songs of Home.”

The first will be 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 15, at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral, 315 Goldsborough St., Easton. The second will be 4 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 17, at St. Paul’s Church, 225 Morris St., Oxford.

Both performances are free and open to the public.

“Songs of Home” will feature music by Kim André Arnesen, Sarah Quartel, Stacey V. Gibbs and others. An arrangement of “Shenandoah” with pianist Lyn Banghart also will be included.

Allegra! was formed in spring 2019 and is directed by Amy Morgan, Allegro Academy artistic director.

The group was met with full houses and standing ovations in its inaugural performances and has since been singing at a number of community events, most recently the Easton Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast.

Allegra! is a program of Allegro Academy and is funded by the Maryland State and Talbot County Arts Councils. The mission of Allegro Academy is to offer exceptional music education and performance experiences to the greater Talbot County Area and to make these offerings affordable to all.
