The DC Classical Chamber Music Players' Meetup group is a collection of classical musicians interested in playing chamber music for fun. While good music is the goal, the emphasis here is on fun and enjoyment! As of 8/24/14, we have 141 members, covering 17 different instruments, at varying skill levels. All musicians of all instruments, at all skill levels except beginner, are welcome to join. There's no obligation to play at any given gathering, but you might quickly find yourself tempted to join in. Many who were reticent to attend, or thought they might just "sit and listen" found themselves playing at their first meeting. Nerves and feeling intimidated can be left at the doorstep. We're a collegial, congenial, non-competitive group; criticism and attitude are not welcome; everyone's best effort is gratefully accepted by all.
In addition to small ensemble play, we sponsor the DC Chamber Orchestra, which holds two concerts per year and has bi-monthly rehearsals September through May at a church conveniently located near public transportation, in downtown NW DC. All are welcome here too.
Please read the "About Us" page at http://files.meetup.com/557533/About%20Us.pdf before applying for membership so you understand how the group operates, what the dues cover, and whether this group is right for you. There is an annual membership fee of $15.00. Payment is expected immediately upon acceptance into the group. If you fail to pay dues within two weeks of acceptance into the group, you will be removed.
Hope you'll join us!
