DA CAPO CHAMBER PLAYERS
FOR CHAMPIONING CONTEMPORARY MUSIC OVER 50 YEARS

Since its founding in 1970, Da Capo Chamber Players has distinguished itself as one of the finest Pierrot chamber ensembles in United States. Known for its unique and dedicated attention to every work, its dynamic performances are consistent with the highest musical standards found in performances of traditional repertoire.
