In a recent David Friend Recital Hall performance, the Berklee Chamber Players (BCP) presented an eclectic evening of music that featured talented faculty instrumentalists and composers. The program also included contemporary chamber music from around the globe and contemporary genres incorporating electronic sound design.

Founded by Melissa Howe, chair of the String Department, the BCP showcases Berklee's innovative classical music scene.
