Understanding is the root of all love. That is to say, with insight, we can kindle our passion for music.
Insight Chamber Players is a chamber music collective dedicated to bringing music to unique locations and guiding music-lovers through the passion of the art form. Our goal is to provide chamber music in the manner it was originally intended — in beautiful intimate spaces such as homes and salons that facilitate camaraderie around music. Our activities include recitals, open rehearsals, sight reading parties and mentorship.
Recitals feature interactive presentations around the historical contexts of composers and their musical techniques, including conversations with currently living composers.
Open rehearsals are a chance for audiences to see behind the curtain into how music is prepared - participants will observe the conversations that take place between musicians, the reasonings behind interpretations and offer their input into the music.
Sight reading parties are a favorite pastime of professional musicians where they read music at sight for the first time. We invite you to observe this secret life of musicians 'playing off the cuff.'
Insight is dedicated to the mentorship of young composers. Our network facilitates connections between students and accomplished composers, offering artistic and professional guidance. Students are provided performance and commission opportunities, and audiences will get to participate in the building of new artistic careers.
