Founded in 2022 by clarinetist Thomas Carroll and flutist Andrea LeBlanc, Arpeggione performs Classical and Romantic chamber music in historic homes and landscapes of the North Shore, and wherever the power of music is most needed.
Arpeggione pairs familiar and lesser-known masterpieces of the late 18th and 19th c. in chamber arrangements for winds and strings. As the North Shore’s only resident period-instrument ensemble, Arpeggione promises to revitalize once-overlooked repertoire to create a newly expanded, re-examined, and inclusive musical canon.
Arpeggione is a BIPOC- and woman-led organization at the vanguard of historically-informed chamber music. We draw inspiration from women-led salons of the past to expand our musical horizons and strengthen community. We are passionate about showing listeners that they can have a personal connection to classical music no matter their experience.
Arpeggione performs free community concerts throughout the year. The ensemble has performed at Harborlight House, a low-income assisted living facility in Beverly as well as the Beverly Senior Center. Arpeggione has received funding from Gloucester 400+ to offer free admission to “Songs of the Seafarer” to underserved audiences during the first Fisheries Heritage Month of August 2023. In the 23-24 season Arpeggione will expand its outreach program to students and families, performing free concerts in schools, libraries, and other community venues.
