The Atlanta Chamber Players, a mixed ensemble of strings, winds and piano, were founded in 1976 and are celebrating their 42nd Season in 2017-2018. The ensemble has earned a national reputation as a pioneer among chamber groups and is widely respected among arts organizations in the Southeast. The ACP’s broad repertoire includes traditional masterpieces as well as contemporary classics. ACP also has a long-standing commitment to performing the music of living American composers.
Founded in 1996, the neoPhonia New Music Ensemble promotes the music of established contemporary composers, presents important chamber works of the late 20th/early 21st Century, hosts significant guest artists and provides an opportunity for the performance of music by emerging young composers. The ensemble features a flexible instrumentation comprised of GSU Faculty, GSU Student and area professional musicians. The group has been the featured guest ensemble at the 2014 National Conference of the National Association of Composers – USA (NACUSA), the 2008 National Conference of the Society of Composers, Inc. (SCI); the Third Biennial Contemporary Music Symposium in 2001 at the University of Tennessee-Chattanooga and the 1998 SCI Region IV Conference. The ensemble was cited in the April 2004 issue of GRAMOPHONE Magazine and has been featured on broadcasts by NPR affiliate WABE-FM 90.1. The name neoPhonia is loosely derived from two Greek words meaning “new voices.”
