The mission of the Atlanta Chamber Players is to contribute to the future of chamber music by providing a world-class mixed ensemble chamber music experience to a broad audience crossing demographics, through the performance of traditional and modern chamber music repertoire and the commissioning of new works by the group.
The Atlanta Chamber Players, a mixed ensemble of strings, winds and piano, were founded in 1976 and are celebrating their 40th Anniversary Season in 2015-2016. The ensemble has earned a national reputation as a pioneer among chamber groups and is widely respected among arts organizations in the Southeast. The ACP’s broad repertoire includes traditional masterpieces (Beethoven, Brahms) as well as contemporary classics (Crumb, Messiaen). The ACP also has a long-standing commitment to performing the music of living American composers. In addition to public concerts, the ACP participates in multiple outreach and educational programs, hosts intimate soirée events in fine homes throughout the region, tours domestically and abroad, and organizes the national Rapido! 14-Day Composition Contest.
