Atlanta Chamber Players

Sunday, May 19th 2:00 p.m.

Since 1976, the Atlanta Chamber Players have dedicated themselves to the preservation and performance of small-scale classical works. And they don’t limit themselves to Brahms and Beethoven—although they do play those masters’ pieces and advertising jingles from time to time—but vary their repertoire to include selections from contemporary composers and living American artists. The group fosters up-and-coming talents as well, founding the “Rapido!” 14-day composition contest that invites submissions of new works from across the country. But whatever programs the ACP applies their instruments to, they do it with a style hailed by the Gainesville Times as “elegant…real chamber music.”

Musicians: David Coucheron (violin), Helen Hwaya Kim (violin), Catherine Lynn (viola), Brad Ritchie (cello), Joseph McFadden (bass), Susan Welty (horn), Elizabeth Pridgen (piano)

All concerts performed at First Presbyterian Church. Please contact the Music Ministry for more information or to be added to our mailing list: 404-228-7732 |
