The Walden Chamber Players is comprised of 12 dynamic artists in various combinations of string, piano, and wind ensembles. The wide variety of instrumental groupings allow for great versatility and eclectic programming, a hallmark of the Walden Chamber Players. Founded in 1997, the group presents educational curricula and concerts in a format that highlights the belief that music is the human experience translated into sound. Programs are designed to present rarely heard works by composers of the past as well as music by contemporary composers in a conscious effort to broaden the musical horizon of the audience.
The musicians are current and former members of such prestigious organizations as the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Boston Pops, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra. Artistic director Christof Huebner also performs and records with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra. Ensemble members are on the faculty of New England's premier musical teaching institutions, such as the New England Conservatory of Music, Boston University, and the Boston Conservatory of Music.
The Clark is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, MA. The galleries are open Tuesday through Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm (daily in July and August). Admission is free November through May. Admission June 1 through October 31 is $10 for adults, free for children 18 and younger, members, and students with valid ID.
