Manasquan, NJ - Algonquin Arts’ resident chorus, Allegro!, will be performing in their second concert of the season entitled The Great American Songbook II, on Sunday, May 16th at 3 pm. They will be performing music from the 1920s to 1960s - from Broadway, Hollywood, and Tin Pan Alley - including favorites like "Mona Lisa," "Cry Me A River," and "That Old Black Magic."

Allegro! was established in 2004 under the direction of conductor Marcello Velame, and since then, the Chorus has performed to sold-out audiences at Algonquin Arts and off-site concerts at other prestigious venues throughout New Jersey. The thirty member chorus has drawn vocalists from ten towns in Ocean and Monmouth Counties, and for the concert on May 16th, they will be performing with a small jazz ensemble as well.

Tickets are $28 for adults, $26 for seniors, and $20 for students and children.
