When it comes to the music for your Wedding in San Antonio, accept NO IMITATIONS!!

If you have browsed the webpages of live music providers in San Antonio lately, you may have noticed that some of them look suspiciously similar to ours,  That is no accident!!  They say "imitation is the sincerest form of flattery".  And here at Allegretto Music, we are feeling really flattered lately.  But when it comes to the music for your wedding, accept no imitations.  As with any other service you are seeking for one of the most important days of your life, you want the real deal.  That is Allegretto Music.

Allegretto is the favorite among SA couples - Allegretto Music is the undisputed leader among San Antonio couples for all types of music services related to your wedding celebration.  Our company has been rated by local brides and voted The Knot Best Of Weddings 2008 Pick.  Allegretto was rated as the best in two categories: ceremony music and reception music.  In the category of ceremony, we were the only vendor preferred among SA couples.  In the reception category, we received the highest possible rating of 3 stars, which means above and beyond.

The other ensembles in San Antonio purchase and play wedding sheet music published by Allegretto Music - Did you know Allegretto Music writes sheet music for weddings that is sold across the US and other countries?  Jose Irizarry, owner and Musical Director, is an accomplished composer and arranger.  His sheet music publications are distributed by the leading retailer of instruments, music and accessories for string musicians: Shar Products Company.  You can browse his titles online at  Search for "Irizarry".  Most other string ensembles in San Antonio have purchased our sheet music directly from us to play at weddings locally.  In fact, many wedding string ensembles across the US use music published by Allegretto Music.

The musicians that play as part of Allegretto Music ensembles are true professionals -  Our musical director, Jose Irizarry, has a Master's Degree in Violin Performance from the Mannes College of Music in New York City.  Jose studied with renowned violinist, David Nadien, who was concertmaster for the New York Philharmonic under the direction of Maestro Leonard Bernstein.  Our musicians are hand picked and have ample experience performing for weddings.  We uphold a very high standard of quality.  All of our artists are devoted to their craft.  Most of our classical musicians also play with the San Antonio Symphony, including owner-director, Jose Irizarry.  Our reception musicians are degreed professionals.

Allegretto Music records all of its own music samples - All of our samples are real live samples of Allegretto Musicians.  You may even hear some clinking china and other background noises.  :-)

So as others try to imitate what we do, Allegretto Music continues to set the standard for wedding entertainment.  Call us or email us about your wedding.  We would love to hear from you!!
