As Buffalo’s preeminent chamber music ensemble, the Buffalo Chamber Players presents innovative music programs performed by our region’s finest musicians. The ensemble’s mission is to challenge, redefine and enhance the public’s perception of chamber music while promoting the city of Buffalo as an inspiring place to live, work, and play.

Recent projects include Western New York premieres of chamber operas by composers John Blow, John Harbison and Roland E. Martin, concert programs incorporating the works of Buffalo visual artists Gerald Mead, Catherine Burchfield Parker, Mark Lavatelli and Martha Visser’t Hooft, and collaborations with area organizations including the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, the Buffalo Philharmonic Chorus, the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library and CEPA Gallery.

Formed in 2007 by Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra violist Janz Castelo, the group is comprised of members of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and other distinguished area musicians. The group’s critically acclaimed concerts explore both historical chamber music masterworks and contemporary works by living composers.

Praise for the ensemble:

“The Buffalo Chamber Players are one of the finest things to happen to the region’s classical music scene in the last decade.”
The Public

“So far this season, the programs put on by the Buffalo Chamber Players have contained some of the most entertaining material heard in any local concert series.”
Garaud MacTaggart, critic for the Buffalo News

“The Buffalo Chamber Players is a most welcome addition to the cultural scene in our region. A vibrant and diverse group of extremely talented musicians, they bring palpable excitement, creativity and passion to their performances, and are a breath of fresh musical air in Western New York.” 
JoAnn Falletta, Music Director of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra
