2013 Concert Series

Join us for our fourth season!

The Chamber Players of Canada have been performing together for over ten years and have recorded nine CDs, which have been receiving rave reviews around the world. Two more will be released this season. The response to the first three seasons of our concert series has been tremendous, and we are delighted to be presenting a fourth season of concerts in Ottawa.

The 2012-2013 concert series features some of Canada’s best musicians including harpist Jennifer Swartz, pianist Andrew Tunis; violinists Alexandre DaCosta, Yehonatan Berick, and Marie Bérard; soprano Joyce El-Khoury; harpsichordist Thomas Annand; flautists Joanna G’froerer and Camille Churchfield; clarinetist Kimball Sykes; violist Guylaine Lemaire; harpsichordist Thomas Annand; cellists Denise Djokic, Paul Marleyn, Stéphane Tétrault and Julian Armour and many others.

As well as evening concerts, this series will feature a first for Ottawa – two 6:00 p.m. “Rush Hour” concerts inviting you to stay downtown and enjoy a concert after work instead of battling traffic. Come early and join other music lovers at Carmello’s Restaurant and Bar before the concert. Many music lovers will also appreciate hearing a concert earlier in the evening and then going for dinner afterwards. In additionm Ottawa's only morning "Coffee Concert" series is back again this year; join other music lovers for coffee and refreshments provided by Bridgehead before enjoying a performance. A great way to start the day!
