 The 15th year for the ensemble brings together another dedicated group of over 140 people ages 9 – 89.  This community orchestra of fiddles, guitars, banjos, mandolins, basses, harps, cellos and even some horns are backed by professionals delivering a heartwarming and energetic performance.  As one concert goer said as they left a show, “I come back every year because this whole show and purpose behind it makes me smile and feel all the good there is in the world.  Kids playing with their grandparents, people from all different backgrounds coming together. AND it’s good music!”  This show is more than fiddle tunes.  We’ve been busy for the past several months working up a stylistically diverse set of music for this year’s concerts. Get ready to hear an 84-year-old fiddler ripping up a solo with a group of teenagers, a French tune spotlighting our cello players, a rock song featuring solos from our bass players, a young trumpeter sweetening up a swing song, a mom backing up her daughter singing, a grandfather playing clarinet with his granddaughters on fiddles, a husband new to banjo playing with his wife who has played violin for many years, and SO much more! You never know what’s in store with this great community of musicians.

 The NH Fiddle Ensemble is a nonprofit whose mission is to bring community together through music.  Rehearsals start in November and go through April.  Music is taught by ear so you won’t see any music stands on stage, just performers smiling and looking at the audience and each other.   After rehearsing in seven smaller groups throughout New Hampshire and Maine, the groups then come together for 2 large rehearsals and 6 concerts.  Some concerts are in partnership with other nonprofits to help raise awareness of community organizations.
