Founded in the Summer of 2017, Ashuelot Concerts believes that Chamber Music has the power to touch, transform and inspire anyone who experiences it live, in the concert hall. Keene is incredibly lucky to have a wonderful concert hall right here in our beautiful town at the Redfern Arts Center at Keene State College. Ashuelot Concerts aims to bring the sounds of world-class performers to Keene, giving heartfelt performances of narrative programs, always accompanied by insightful explanation and education outreach.
Violinist Louisa Stonehill and Pianist Nicholas Burns emigrated from their native London to Keene, New Hampshire in the Summer of 2016. Eager to escape the confines of a major city and find nature, they have completely fallen in love with the Monadnock Region and the people that they have encountered since their big move. On stage they are often seen performing together as the Steinberg Duo. During the summer of 2017, they formed the Samara Piano Quartet with Viola player Marcia Cassidy and Cellist Paul Cohen.
