Announcing the 2016 Season: The Beginning of the Next Half Century!

In 1966, four musicians were invited to come to northern Vermont to perform chamber music in the Caspian Lake area for a community of passionate music lovers. Suitable space was found in the dining hall of the Sterling School on Craftsbury Common. Weekly concerts began and the Craftsbury Chamber Players were born. In 1982, a group of committed music lovers from the Burlington area established a second venue for our summer concerts. The ensemble has performed continuously in both areas ever since. In 2016, this partnership of musicians and community continues its mission to make live chamber music an enduring part of our culture. Our programs are wide-ranging yet deeply rooted in the masters. Fascinating groupings make each concert a unique journey not to be missed. Concerts in the Northeast Kingdom will once again be held in the Hardwick Town House, our home since 1970.


We are in a new venue for our Burlington area programs. Beginning this summer, our concerts will be performed at the the Elley-Long Music Center at Saint Michaels College, Colchester. [see detailed directions] We look forward to sharing memorable evenings of great music with you this season!
