About Bach Birthday Celebration

The CCP is in a celebratory mood, as we honor the 339th birthday of Johann Sebastian Bach. We are delighted to welcome two new guest artists to this program: Alto Rebecca Robinson and Oboe d'amorist Miriam Kapner. Hear arias from Cantatas BWV 64, 112, and 200, as well as Solo Violin and Solo Cello suites. The g minor gamba sonata will be performed on viola and harpsichord. 

Scrumptious cupcakes and non alcoholic beverages will be served after the short concert.

Join us in celebration!

Colorado Chamber Players

Named one of the top five chamber groups in Colorado by the Denver Post, the Colorado Chamber Players celebrates its 30th Anniversary Season in 2023-2024.

The ensemble has received numerous awards, including the prestigious Chamber Music America Residency Awards (2000 and 2008). The CCP has received awards from the Argosy Foundation, Denver Mayor's Fund, Colorado Creative Industries, National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities, Energize Colorado, Xcel Energy Foundation, and the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD).  CCP recently performed a world premiere of “The Falcon” at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, in May 2023.

The CCP has a core of string quartet, double bass, piano, harp, clarinet and flute.  Favorite guest artists have included cellists Lynn Harrell and David Geber, clarinetist Derek Bermel, guitarist Sharon Isbin, violists Jesse Levine, Patricia McCarty and Roger Tapping, and pianist Jeffrey Kahane. 

Critic Marc Shulgold wrote of a performance with Lynn Harrell in 2018 (from thescen3.org):

"From the hushed opening chords, growing majestically out of silence, the ensemble played as if with a single voice, the two cellos and then two violins soaring exquisitely through the First Movement’s unforgettable theme. The gorgeous Adagio unfolded with a wisely chosen tempo – not too fast, but just slow enough to maintain momentum and keep our focus on the subtly emerging melody. The final two movements bubbled with confidence, each of the numerous transitions managed with solid control. No surprise that the audience, clearly engaged in Schubert’s heavenly music, barely made a peep during the performance."
