ABOUT THE RICHARDSON CHAMBER PLAYERS
The Richardson Chamber Players, Princeton University’s resident ensemble of performance faculty, distinguished guest artists and supremely talented students, was co-founded by Nathan Randall and Michael Pratt in 1994. The ensemble comprises musicians who teach instrumental music and voice at Princeton University, distinguished guest artists, and talented students. Their repertoire consists of works for singular combinations of instruments and voices, which would otherwise remain unheard. The artistic direction of the group rotates. This season’s programs were conceived by a small committee consisting of mezzo-soprano Sarah Pelletier; pianist Jennifer Tao; and cellist Alistair MacRae.
