The Colorado Chamber Players presents our 28th Season “Transformations” with new and old friends, new projects and with YOU, our wonderful and loyal audience members. We are gradually moving back to live performances. For the safety of our patrons and our musicians, some concerts will be performed virtually this season, and some concerts will be performed in a live setting for vaccinated patrons. We are ready to be flexible, and hope you are too!
A charming Baroque program will feature Jennifer Carpenter (recorder) with her debut with the Colorado Chamber Players. Music of Telemann, Flackton, Hume and CPE Bach awaits- all in a FREE zoom concert through the Arapahoe Libraries, on Monday September 20, 7:00 pm. For Baroque Gems, please register HERE, limited spots available.
On October 22 and 24, we are thrilled to perform with brilliant young bassist August Ramos, member of the Colorado Symphony and on the faculty of the University of Wyoming. August will perform quintets by Boccherini and Dvorak with the CCP quartet in We Go Lower. Joseph de Bologne’s virtuosic G minor string quartet will round out the LIVE program, in Wyoming and Broomfield.
MIsshapen Pearls brings to light the amazing music of three Baroque women composers: Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre, Lucrezia Vizzana, and Isabella Leonarda, all in a video format. Dan Urbanowicz makes a triumphant return on viola d’amore, along with Peter Schimpf, archlute, Sarah Biber, gamba; and Barbara Hamilton, viola and viola d’amore. CCP also performs works by Telemann and Heinrich Biber on the pre-recorded video, available in November 2021.
We celebrate the music of Josephe de Bolougne (Forgotten Genius: The Chevalier de Saint-George), a mixed race composer/violinist who lived in the Caribbean and in France in the 1700’s, and was a colleague of Mozart. A virtual concert will be available later in the season.
Our February concert (February 16, 17 and 20) Love Changes Everything will be a delight. Soprano Kathryn Radakovich returns to Colorado to sing Brahms songs and Loisaida My Love by Jessie Montgomery. Pianist Andrew Cooperstock is featured in the powerhouse C minor piano quartet of Johannes Brahms.
Join us as we return to performing for you, our beloved audiences. We are all transforming together.
