About Ensemble Soleil...
Since 1995 Ensemble Soleil has given concerts and presented multi-media theatrical events in the United States and Europe. In 2001 Ensemble Soleil became a juried ensemble of the Vermont Arts Council.
Known for innovative programming and lively performances, we play period instruments and authentic modern copies. We were recognized by the I.R.S as a non profit organization in 1999.
Our programs feature the beautiful viol consort music of the Renaissance from Spain, Italy, England and the Low Countries, and the multi-faceted Baroque chamber music of Italy, Austria, Germany and France. The Whitefield Trio also performs Colonial American Moravian music.
Our Performance Arts Events, Glimpses in Time, add new dimensions to traditional concerts, giving audiences a historical context for the music. From 1997 to 1999 we were Artists in Residence at Colby-Sawyer College through grants from the New Hampshire Humanities Council and the New Hampshire State Council on the Arts. Three of our theatrical events are now available to tour to museums, schools and colleges.
