The concert will take place in Hotchkiss Recital Hall, Gibson Center for the Arts, on the College campus, 300 Washington Avenue.

Formed in 2004, the Annapolis Chamber Players grew out of collaborative ventures dating back to the 1990s. The ensemble specializes in mixed chamber music and performs music from the Baroque to the 21st century, interchanging winds, strings, and keyboard instruments. Their innovative programming features Classics & Gems: chamber “favorites” complimented by lesser-known gems of the repertoire for two to eight players.
The Annapolis Chamber Players are devoted to fostering an appreciation of mixed chamber music for all ages. More information about the ensemble can be found on www.annapolischamberplayers.org.
