We seek to help build and preserve an audience for live classical music through community and educational outreach, as well as through collaborations with Harlem's other arts organizations, schools and cultural institutions. The Harlem Chamber Players bring music to underserved neighborhoods, promote shared community arts and cultural engagement and provide opportunities for classically trained musicians of color.
