L’Esperance Mandolin Ensemble will open this year’s URI Guitar Festival with a program featuring selections from Modesto Moussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition. Moussorgsky’s composition celebrates the works of his friend Victor Hartmann who had died the previous year. His extraordinary music evokes vivid images of Hartmann’s paintings and sketches.
L’Esperance features musicians from Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York and Connecticut of different backgrounds and ages who come together to enjoy the pleasure of making music with each other. Since 1994, l’Esperance has been sharing that joy with audiences around New England. Our music ranges from classical to contemporary, from Celtic to Klezmer, from rock standards to Baroque.
Want to make music with us? L’Esperance gathers Saturday mornings at 9:00 in the Church of the Mediator in Providence. Call 401-345-6930 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to arrange a free Try Your Pluck Mandolin Lesson.
