Elegant, Tasteful Live Music

to add atmosphere, sophistication and a touch of class to any event or occasion. 


Welcome to Alla Breve!  We are a New England-based husband-wife team whose partnership we feel conveys the sense of harmony and rapport that only comes with years of sharing both our lives and our music.   We offer a range of styles, including a sophisticated classical repertoire, creative jazz standards and originals, and contemporary popular favorites.  Or we can provide a sensitive blend of styles.

Our ensemble is extremely versatile and fits well into any venue or setting.  We provide a sound of  ethereal beauty for church or other religious services, grace and elegance for garden ceremonies and other outdoor settings, and contemporary, upbeat rhythms for a lively club or cocktail hour atmosphere.  

We  invite you to explore and get to know us in the pages that follow.   Our Appearances page lists events and locations at which you can hear us play live.  We have also provided some tools and information to help you easily plan and select the music that fits your needs and your style.  We pride ourselves on offering the highest level of service and are always available to answer your questions.    We hope you’ll get in touch!
