Da Capo Chamber Players
Global American Chamber Music
The Conservatory is proud to host the Da Capo Chamber Players' return to the Brooklyn College Performing Arts Center. After a three year absence, this premiere chamber music group will again grace the stage to perform works by American composers who incorporate major background ties with global musical influences. And this time, the players will perform on the newly opened and beautifully appointed Don Buckwald Theatre.
The Players are widely acclaimed for virtuosity and stimulating programs. Da Capo is synonymous with an exciting legacy of musical directions: openness to a wide spectrum of styles of new music plus a special dedication to working with composers. Winner of the Naumburg Chamber Music Award in 1973, Da Capo has long been a leader in building a strong heritage of present‐day American chamber music, pointing with pride to more than 90 chamber music works written especially for the group. Composers' styles range widely: JoanTower, Philip Glass, Harvey Sollberger, Philippe Bodin, and many others.
This program is made possible in part with public funds from
The New York State Council on the Arts and The National Endowment for the Arts.
