NEP Chamber Players Series

The New England Philharmonic broadens appreciation of contemporary music by outreach to new audiences through the NEP Chamber Players, composed of principal players from the brass, strings and woodwind sections of the full orchestra.

Often the Chamber Players create unique programs in collaboration with entities that sponsor performances.

  •  The Boston Athenaeum underwrote commissions for two pieces to be written for the Players — new 21st century music based on original scores of 16th century French Masses in the Athenaeum’s collection being digitized to bring them into the 21st century and available to scholars worldwide.
  • For the Peabody Essex Museum, the Chamber Players created Rodin’s Playlist — music Rodin loved — for the opening of a major exhibit of his sculpture.
  • Other organizations sponsoring Chamber Players’ concerts have included Ellingwood Concerts in Nahant, Needham Council on Aging, Newton Free Library, Kings Chapel and Harvard Business School in Boston.

Meet the Instruments Series

“Meet the Instruments” programs introduce children to the three instrument ‘families’ — how each instrument sounds and relates to the ‘relatives’ in its family, how the family sounds when it plays together, and ending with the children coming forward to meet and ask questions of the musicians…..who always are mobbed!

  •  This series is offered each Fall at the Boston Children’s Museum and single ‘Meet the Instrument’ events have engaged children at the Peabody Essex Museum, the Harvard Business School and Neighborhood House Charter School in Dorchester.
