Welcome to the website of Guitar Orchestra Alegria !

We are a group of about 18 enthusiastic guitar players with a repertoire going from renaissance to pop music. Next to our much-beloved classic guitar, we play bass and octava and sometimes percussion, flute, recorder or cello are added. Marleen Casteele is our conductor and recently, Ruben Bouteca joined her as co-conductor.

We participate in plenty of events, such as ‘Day of the Guitar’, ‘Culture Market’ and contests and we like to meet other Belgian and foreign guitar orchestras, with whom we can organise duo concerts. We already met Cuerda (Antwerp), Color (Schaarbeek), Cambridge Guitar Orchestra (UK), Lybra Guitar Orchestra (Italy) and Rheine Guitar Orchestra (Germany) and we hope to meet more guitar orchestras ! Do you want to join us ?

Kind regards,
Guitar Orchestra Alegria
