Meet the Musicians!

Allante String Quartet Utah Wedding Special Event Music

We are the Allante String Quartet. We've been playing together since 2016 and, in addition to our concerts, we also love playing for weddings and special events in Utah County and Salt Lake County.

Here's a little bit about us! Meet the musicians!

Rachel Burton, cello.
Rachel had somewhat of an unconventional upbringing in music, and began cello when she was 12. Despite the late start, Rachel surpassed her colleagues with natural skill. She received her bachelor's degree in cello performance at Utah State University. She fell in love with chamber music under the concentrated direction of the Fry Street Quartet. She furthered her graduate studies in performance at the University of Utah with Pegsoon Whang of the Utah Symphony. Rachel holds a skilled studio of 30 students, is a member of the Timpanogos Symphony Orchestra, and is the founder of the Allante String Quartet. She has two rambunctious girls and a delightful husband who bring her so much joy!
