The Allegri Quartet, in its 62nd year, is Britain's oldest chamber group. Founded in 1953 by Eli Goren and William Pleeth it has played a key role in the British musical scene, working with composers such as Benjamin Britten, Michael Tippett, Elizabeth Maconchy, John Woolrich, Peter Fribbins, Anthony Payne, James MacMillan, Matthew Taylor and most recently Alec Roth, resulting in new commissions and recordings.

Regular invitations to concert societies and leading concert halls stand alongside newer relationships such as with the Southbank Sinfonia and their festival in Anghiari, Italy and ACE tours based in Cambridge.

They are visiting professors through residencies at Bangor and Middlesex universities and enjoy regular invitations to teach/ coach at music colleges and amateur chamber music courses around the UK.
