About the Artist

Formed in 1994-95, this mixed ensemble comprises Princeton’s Performance Faculty, distinguished guest artists, and supremely talented Princeton students. Richardson Chamber Players concerts take place on Sundays at 3pm in Richardson Auditorium in Alexander Hall. The artistic direction of the group rotates. This seasons’ programs were conceived by a small committee consisting of cellist Alistair MacRae, mezzo-soprano Sarah Pelletier, and trombonist Benjamin Herrington. Michael Pratt is a Founding Director and Advisor.
