HRCP Summer Sessions

HRCP places a balanced emphasis on musical growth as well as personal and social development. When studying in a chamber ensemble, students often build close friendships with the other members of the group while expanding musical independence and skills. The absence of a conductor also allows participants to make their own musical decisions.

For nearly two decades HRCP has been receiving letters from parents, students and alumni telling us that a summer at HRCP has changed their lives—even beyond confidence on their instrument. Students and parents alike describe an increased sense of self-identity, enhanced self-worth and leadership aptitude. We are proud of our unique program and our ability to provide a safe and supportive environment in which young musicians are nurtured and given the opportunity to explore and express themselves. Please check out some of our students’ thoughts in their own words on our Alumni page and consider a gift to help the young musicians of Hampton Roads Chamber Players.

Hampton Roads Chamber Players is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Your donation is greatly appreciated and tax-deductible.

"I approach everything as chamber music. Even with Beethoven symphonies, I lead from the violin and basically encourage the orchestra to think of it as a giant string quartet."
