In 1978, a group of ten musicians holding principal positions with such prestigious ensembles as the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, Minnesota Orchestra, New York City Ballet and Opera Orchestras, and New York’s Speculum Musicae joined artistic forces in northern New Hampshire to present chamber music of the highest quality. During the past four decades, the Chamber Players have designed and presented concerts, multi- media presentations, lectures and seminars of the highest artistic and intellectual standards including collaborations with internationally renowned figures like jazz great Branford Marsalis and tango master Pablo Ziegler. In addition, they have frequently partnered with regional artists, celebrities and organizations like Ballet New England, Ben & Jerry and Bread and Puppet Theater.
