Fountain Hills Chamber Players present the passion and joy of professional chamber music in two programs this year:

Concert I: The Soldier's Tale by Igor Stravinsky; featuring performers from Fountain Hills Theater

  • February 19, 2017 – 3:00 p.m. concert, 2:30 p.m. pre-concert talk, follow by a reception around 4:00 p.m.
  • Tickets are $20 for adults, 50% off for students; group rates available.

In the flapper era, heavily influenced by popular jazz dance forms, Stravinsky composed one of the most significant scores in chamber music history.  An ensemble of seven players plus narrator, actors and dancer "to be played, read and danced."  Stravinsky is well-known for composing unique ballet works and The Soldier's Tale is a combination of finely crafted composition with creative and inspiring dramatic narrative. 


Concert II: Masterworks - Piano Chamber Music

  • March 19, 2017 – 7:00 p.m. concert, 6:30 p.m. pre-concert talk
  • Admission to see Fountain Hills Chamber Players is FREE at Dayspring UMC, no reservation necessary; first-come, first-served; donation collected benefiting Dayspring UMC and FHCP.

This selection of repertoire represents some of the most tried and true classical masterworks.  Pieces that continue to stand the test of time and inspire audiences and performers alike with their brilliance.  For violin, cello and piano, Felix Mendelssohn composed the Trio in D Minor to be performed by FHCP with Board Chair, Alice Brovan at the piano.  And known as one of his own personal favorites, W. A. Mozart composed a quintet for piano with oboe, clarinet, bassoon and horn: Quintet in E-flat, K. 452 featuring pianist Thomas Nixon to close our 20th Anniversary Season.
