Concetta Abbate @concettallegra

Violin, Viola, Voice

About

I am originally from Long Island and grew up studying violin since age four. While my roots are in classical I am also interested in Contemporary Music and Jazz. Love to play chamber music, new music. I have presence on the New York music scene, and work with many poets and storytellers setting their work to music.

Music

I love to put together different mixed chamber ensembles including orchestral instruments such as woodwinds, strings, percussion and piano. I am a composer and love to program my own pieces alongside complimentary works and arrangements that show the history of influence behind my process as an artist.

Here are some work samples of my various chamber ensembles:
