Ban Ensemble buds from three musicians graduated from the Conservatorio “Gioachino Rossini” in Pesaro: Angela Benelli, violin, Barbara Piperno, flute, Elisabetta Rossi, harp.
The trio officially begins its activity in 2009 with the aim and the common passion to experiment and find new and original interpretation keys of a repertoire that ranges from classical to contemporary, passing through popular music.
