The Walden Chamber Players will perform two world premiers: “Scat” for oboe, violin, viola, cello, and harpsichord by Augusta Read Thomas, and Julia Scott Carey’s String trio. The afternoon will also feature Donald Wheelock’s Ten bagatelles for oboe and string quartet and Bach’s Trio sonata in G for violin, oboe and basso continuo, BWV 1038.

Walden Chamber Players is comprised of thirteen dynamic artists in various combinations of string, piano, and wind ensembles. The wide variety of instrumental groupings possible with this ensemble allows 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.
