From Brattle Street Chamber Players

"Quite honestly, it was classical music at its best." -The Harvard Independent

"An electrifying mixture of zaniness, bombast, and the finest individual musicianship that Harvard has to offer." -The Harvard Crimson


Warm-up for our Spring Concert, April 2011

From fourteen strands of pure life force and unbridled inventiveness, the Brattle Street Chamber Players weave a silky fabric of musical ecstasy unrivalled in this dimension.

When they are not saving the universe, the fourteen members of Brattle form one of Harvard's most exciting musical ensembles. A conductorless string chamber orchestra, Brattle has brought an intimate and dynamic approach to a broad-ranging repertoire of standard, seldom performed, and newly composed music for strings since its founding in 1998.

Past programs have included works by Harvard undergraduates, Osvaldo Golijov, Jimi Hendrix, Handel, Mendelssohn, and Japanese anime composers. In the 2012-2013 season we featured the work of undergraduate composers Lydia Brindamour '13 and Phillip Golub '16. We look forward to continuing our tradition of bringing new and exciting music to the Harvard community, and we hope to see you at our performances!
