Broadway Chamber Players comprises the finest instrumentalists, composers, and conductors across classical, jazz, and new-music fields, all unified by the common thread of performing on Broadway. BCP seeks to continue Broadway’s great tradition of live music by bringing its musicians from the pit to the stage, further enriching the Theater District concert scene by programming diverse chamber-music concerts and providing a fresh approach to hearing some of New York City’s finest musicians in an intimate setting.
