About L’Esperance Mandolin Ensemble:

The mandolin offers hope to those of us who seek the joy of expressing our inner selves through the gift of music. This versatile, intimate instrument lends its voice to a wide range of musical styles from Brazilian chouro to American Bluegrass; from Baroque trio concertos to Klezmer doinas; from avant garde contemporary compositions to Top 40 popular classics. Today the mandolin is enjoying a musical renaissance, once again returning to its place among the plucked string family of instruments.

L’Esperance features musicians from Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island and Connecticut of different backgrounds and ages who come together for the pleasure of making music with each other.  Since 1994, l’Esperance has been sharing that joy with audiences around New England. Recent performances include the Courthouse Center for the Arts in South Kingstown, Bank Street College in New York City, the Blackstone River Theater in Cumberland, the Congregational Church of Grafton, MA, and the Porter Phelps Museum in Hadley, MA. Our music ranges from classical to contemporary, from Celtic to Klezmer, from rock standards to Baroque.
