In these unusual times, we are endeavoring to bring you some delightful online programs. We hope that they will capture the creativity and generosity of Concordia Chamber Players from the safety and comfort of your own homes.
Tune in Today @ 5 PM
The first of our three destination events will be the Nakashima Woodworkers campus featuring Michelle with violinist Alexi Kenney. The serenity and profound design aspects of the Nakashima art studio are reflected in a program of works by Thomas Morley, Pēteris Vasks, John Corigliano, J.S. Bach, Zoltán Kodály, Enescu, and Glière.
Next up will be at Artyard in Frenchtown, NJ where the current exhibition “Shelter Is” explores issues of sanctuary and community through a variety of media. The concert includes pieces by Carlos Simon inspired by the gospel music that shaped his youth; a new composition, Mystery for solo cello by Milad Yousufi, a young Afhghan refugee; Stravinsky’s Elegie for solo viola; an arrangement of Amazing Grace for solo violin along with works of J.S. Bach, Koldáy, Mozart, Dohnányi, and Enescu. For this program, Michelle will be joined by violinist Siwoo Kim and violist Milena Pajaro-van de Stadt.
And finally at The Barn in Cradle Valley we immerse ourselves in the music of Johann Sebastian Bach as we bring you the complete Goldberg Variations in an arrangement for string trio by Dimitri Sitkovetsky, featuring Michelle with violinist Siwoo Kim and violist Milena Pajaro-van de Stadt. It is under this roof that we embarked on our journey to understand each other’s hearts through the possibilities of music.

Concordia ChamberFest 2020
At this year’s ChamberFest Concordia’s Artistic Director Michelle Djokic invited the versatile violinist Edwin Huizinga to become a “quaranteam” with her and explore all the repertoire for violin and cello as they navigated the difficulties of social distancing while safely bringing live music to small groups of friends. The performance includes arrangements of three Preludes from Bach’s Well Tempered Klavier, movements from the notable duos for violin and cello by Ravel, Kodaly, and Hermann, and the entire Duo by Schulhoff. Enjoy views of the nature that surround the musical duo in the beautiful California setting which was a continual source of inspiration to them.
Exquisite music making in magnificent Bucks County
Concordia Chamber Players was founded in 1997 in New Hope, PA. Since that time our audience has come to expect and relish in witnessing the great masterpieces of the chamber music repertoire, spanning all centuries, performed by our stellar list of guests artists in the intimate setting unique to bucolic Bucks County.
Founder and Artistic Director, Michelle Djokic, endeavors to unveil some lesser known gems while presenting compositions we have all come to treasure in a setting that welcomes both the ardent devotee and those who are just embarking on the discovery of all the wealth of witnessing live chamber music. Michelle and her colleagues bask in the warmth of Bucks County and welcome the opportunity to escape the big city for the intimacy and charm of New Hope.
Discover the depth of talent of the Concordia family of musicians, from the veteran to the young protégées in the forum of witnessing the treasured masterpieces and the excitement of discovering a lesser known work. Browse our web site for more information on special events and ticket information.
