Colorado Chamber Players

COLORADO CHAMBER PLAYERS
Beguiling Enchantment

Colorado Chamber Players return to Happy Hour with a program featuring music played on the beguiling viola d’amore. The concert is preceded by a wonderful, short pre-concert lecture to introduce you to this amazing instrument. The composers’ lives span from the sixteenth to nineteenth century and demonstrate the enduring power of this instrument to evoke deep human resonance. Sarah Biber and Paul Primus bring wonderful artistry for the continuo, and Sarah’s solo by Tobias Hume is stunning. To learn more about a performer, click on a name below.
