GREETINGS FOR THE 2017-18 SEASON:
A RAINBOW OF CHAMBER WORKS
Welcome to Front Range Chamber Players’ 33rd season of chamber music! It is always a treat for me to have the opportunity to perform and share this inspiring music with FRCP musicians, board members and audience. Described as “the music of friends”, because of its intimate nature, chamber music brings us all together.
I look forward to presenting a diversity of works from the classics of Beethoven, Mozart, and Haydn to the less known works of Elgar, Martinu, and Crumb. Each concert is certain to have something for everyone, from the new listener to the music aficionado. Enjoy the opportunities to listen to Steinway Artist, Hsing-ay Hsu; Catherine Peterson, Acting Principal Flute of the Colorado Symphony; the magical harp playing of Rachelle Ellins; and other wonderful musicians from the Front Range.
Front Range Chamber Players strives to reach a wide audience. Invite young friends to our November concert at the Old Town or Council Tree Library as we perform David Mullikin’s musically illustrated story of “The Emperor and the Nightingale”. Start the New Year off right and bring a friend to Saint-Saëns’ captivating “Carnival of the Animals” in McNeal Hall on the Fort Collins High School campus. These are among many works presented this season that are certain to engage both new and seasoned listeners.
I look forward to sharing our music with you and your family, friends, and neighbors.
