Mandolin New England is a classical mandolin orchestra that performs compositions from the Renaissance period up to the 20th Century and beyond, as well as modern, local compositions by area musicians and composers. The Orchestra meets six times a year for a gathering where we rehearse, eat delicious food, jam and perform. These are mandolinists from all walks of life that come together to do what they love most, play beautiful music. Our Conductor, Joshuah Bell, is the leader of L’Esperance Mandolin Ensemble from Providence, RI.
“One of New England’s Cultural Delights!”
“It’s fun, it’s incredibly fun, it’s thrilling … It gets your blood moving … it’s not just nine adults sitting in a room staring at notes on a page, it’s nine adults present together, breathing and listening and playing and singing. It’s a very beautiful thing.”
