Paul Klemperer & the New Hampshire Ensemble

Paul Klemperer works as a bandleader, teacher, composer and writer. Based in Austin, TX, Paul spends several weeks every summer in Nelson, NH, at his family’s summer home. A few years ago Paul approached me about getting a band together. With just two rehearsals the New Hampshire Ensemble came together and debuted at the Music in the Park summer concert series in Peterborough. They are the only band to have been invited back every year, for what is now the eighth year of that series. Meanwhile Paul and the Ensemble have had the opportunity to play for private functions, and for what is now an annual concert at Aldworth Manor.



"It is always a pleasure having Paul and the NH Ensemble celebrate with us here at Aldworth!   Perfect for audiences of all ages, this group’s soulfully fun music and great chemistry make them a favorite in our summer music series ."

~ Shane Long, proprietor

Paul Klemperer and the NH Ensemble have been the cornerstone of the Summertime Music in Depot Park. The incredible sound that Paul has perfected thrills the audience year after year! He engages with all ages, and his contagious beat keeps everyone moving……. We are so privileged that Paul has adopted the Monadnock area as his home away from Austin, Tx. 

Paul has brought the music quality, especially Jazz, to a higher standard for all musicians to meet. Forever Grateful!
