RECENTLY FOUNDED in 2013 Ensemble Belvedere presents concerts that celebrate the elegant chamber music of the Baroque, Rococo and early-Classical eras.  

Bringing together top-notch musicians  from around the world who specialize in period performance, Ensemble Belvedere is quickly earning a reputation for stylish, historically-informed  thematic concerts  throughout Northeast Ohio and beyond. ​Authentic period instruments and intimate concert spaces — churches, galleries, libraries, private homes— recreate the musical soundscape of the 18th-century salons and drawing rooms in which the music was originally played, while listeners are treated to beautiful, inspiring, and timeless music written by some of the greatest composers who ever lived.

We believe sparking personal connections between musicians and listeners makes for the best music.  Concertgoers are invited to interact, ask questions, and to take a closer look at our instruments after each performance.  Standalone lecture/demonstrations, workshops and masterclasses are also offered to encourage awareness and appreciation for this relatively unknown but exquisite repertoire. We are committed to growing new audiences with a lifelong love and appreciation for early music.

We have some fabulous repertoire in the works - let's get together for a concert!

For bookings and additional information about Ensemble Belvedere, its musicians and programs, please contact us.  We look forward to hearing from you! 

Ensemble Belvedere looks ahead to an exciting concert season in 2016/2017
