NEP Chamber Players

The New England Philharmonic broadens appreciation of contemporary music and reaches out to new audiences through the NEP Chamber Players, composed of 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.

Meet the Instruments Chamber Players Series

“Meet the Instruments” programs introduce children to the three instrument ‘families’ of the orchestra— 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!
