Introducing Ashuelot Concerts

Founded in the Summer of 2017 by British Musicians, Louisa Stonehill & Nicholas Burns, Ashuelot Concerts believes that live Chamber Music has the power to touch, transform and inspire. Through a series of world-class concerts, school-workshops, community talks and outreach performances for those in need, Ashuelot Concerts aims to promote music as a force for good in this community.

For its inaugural season in 2017/18, Ashuelot Concerts will be presenting three events at the Redfern Arts Center at Keene State College and two concerts at the Synagogue alongside a series of house concerts and illustrated talks in both Keene and Brattleboro. Ashuelot Concerts will also be working with local school children, striving to inspire the next generation, captivate their musical imagination and encouraging them to develop their ability to truly listen. In time, Ashuelot Concerts hopes to build a community of local music-lovers, from long-standing classical music afficionados to those who have never attended a concert, but are curious to find out more about classical music.

We Need Your Help

Launching a new concert series is a daunting prospect, launching one in a new country is even more so! Since arriving here in August 2016 we have been overwhelmed by the warmth of support for the arts in this area. We have been thrilled with the response our concerts have received over the last year and we now hope that you feel inspired to support this new effort to establish a first class concert series here in Keene. There are many ways to support us but by far the most important is to spread the word about our plans, tell all of your friends about our concerts and encourage them to come. The Alumni Recital Hall seats 360 people and we plan to fill it! We are going to make it our mission to bring people to our concerts who have never experienced live classical music and challenge those people not to love what they hear!

Louisa Stonehill | Nicholas Burns

British chamber musicians Louisa Stonehill & 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.  The Sunday Telegraph described them as having both “warm musicality” and “virtuosity”, Gramophone magazine branded them “passionately committed advocates” and The Herald described their playing as “superbly characterised and open-hearted”. Over the last 5 years, The Duo has released four critically acclaimed albums for Nimbus Alliance and Lyrita. They have performed live on BBC Radio 3 and their 2015 release was broadcast by BBC Radio 3 in the UK and Radio Marabu in Germany.

Their performances have taken them to USA, Canada, Spain, Germany and all around the UK. From 2009-2016 they curated their own recital series in the beautifully intimate setting of the 1901 Arts Club on London’s Southbank. They also transformed a disused shop unit into a specialised chamber music studio in Greenwich, London, and held monthly recitals there from 2011-2016, giving audiences a rare opportunity to experience chamber music up close in a small space.
