The Northeast Dulcimer Orchestra was established in October of 2013. Based in northeastern Connecticut, the orchestra has members from Connecticut, New York and Rhode Island.
The mountain dulcimer family of instruments includes (from highest to lowest) Dulcimette, Ginger, Standard, Baritone, and Bass. Our orchestra has all of these plus a bowed dulcimer and a banjammer!
Our repertoire ranges from Early Music to Classical, Traditional and Contemporary. We meet twice monthly and hope to perform for the public 3 to 4 times a year.
