Established in the Fall of 2004 by musicians who live and work in the Permian Basin, The Allegro Chorale is committed to bringing a fresh new expression of musical artistry to our community. Our musicians are committed to the discipline of preparation, the investment of time, and the effort of excellence to bring you our very best. Each Allegro Chorale performance is designed to inspire, entertain, and involve the audience.
The Allegro Chorale has enjoyed the artistic leadership of four conductors since its inception. Current Artist Director & Conductor Kenneth Sieloff began his tenure in the Chorale's 11th year. Mr. Sieloff attended the University of Michigan to obtain a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Education, and he was the 2011 winner of the National Student Conducting Competition hosted by the American Choral Directors Association.
The Chorale consists of 30 singers. Members from all walks of life representing cities throughout the Permian Basin rehearse Thursday evenings in the Mason Rehearsal Hall at the beautiful Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center (WNPAC). Concerts are held in the Rea-Greathouse Recital Hall at the WNPAC as well as in smaller venues in the region.
Singers are selected by audition. Audition forms can be downloaded from this website or obtained by contacting our Artistic Director.
The Allegro Chorale's wide range of performed repertoire include Mariachi and Ranchera, along with newly commissioned works by composers such as Elisenda Fabregas. The Chorale has successfully performed international works like the Missa Criolla by Argentine composer Ariél Ramirez and African Sanctus by British composer David Fanshawe. Other notable performances include Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 and Fern Hill by John Corigliano, each with orchestra, chorus, and soloists.
