Mission Statement: Rembrandt Chamber Players performs the diverse repertoire of chamber music in intimate settings in a way that personally engages the audience and conveys the excitement and accessibility of this musical form. To perpetuate chamber music as a living art form and encourage young musicians, Rembrandt Chamber Players founded an Annual High School Chamber Music Competition in 1995, one of few in the country. Deeply committed to fostering chamber music education and appreciation, RCP established the Rembrandt Young Artists (RYA) program in 2006, providing coaching sessions and numerous performance and outreach opportunities for the competition winners for a full year.
