Since 2009, Camerata New England has been developing just the right combination of performers to create its unique sound. Essential to that sound is that every member of the ensemble is a highly qualified, expert musician. Each Camerata New England performer is distinguished in his or her own right, as well as a superb ensemble player. Based in New Hampshire, Camerata New England performs around the state and throughout New England.
