Beginning, our second decade, the Annapolis Chamber Players is a professional chamber music group dedicated to performing and promoting chamber music, one of music’s most beloved-genres.
Chamber music is a unique form of music making. Many have called it “…a conversation of friends.” It requires teamwork and independent and confidant players. There is only one musician on each musical part, no conductor, and no place to hide.
As entertainers we play in intimate settings for which the genre was intended where audience members are close enough to read our music, feel the air swish off our bows, and hear our breaths.
As educators, we all hold advanced degrees (Master of Music and/or Doctorate in Musical Arts) and enjoy sharing what we do. Teaching students of all ages to be independent players does more than just make great music, it truly empowers.
Collaboration is an essential skill in both chamber music and in life. We are inspired by many of our colleagues and teachers who are taking classical music out of the concert hall and into everyday life. We stand with them to inspire students of all ages to join in our musical collaboration.
We appreciate the support of our patrons, friends, and the Arts Council of Anne Arundel County.
