Read about our Princeton concert in Columbia Spectator
Founded in 2001, Columbia Classical Performers seeks to support the community of classical musicians on campus who wish to perform in an intimate, stress-free environment for their peers. CCP works to give musicians performance opportunities by providing venues all over campus, coordinating recital logistics, publicizing events, and planning post-concert receptions. CCP has a dual purpose: to allow musicians an outlet to share their music with the public, and to provide the Columbia community with free, high-quality classical music.
Past recital venues have included Philosophy Hall, Lerner Hall, Symphony Space and Miller Theatre, and performers have included violinists and pianists to oboists and a mandolin player. The diverse programming over the years has included staples of repertoire such as works by Beethoven and Mozart, to new music composed by students and leading contemporary composers like Esa-Pekka Salonen.
In Fall 2013, aside from monthly concerts on Columbia University campus in Lerner Hall, CCP has two off-campus performances planned as well. One will take place at the Broadway Presbyterian Church (114th & Broadway), and the other will be a collaborative performance on Princeton University campus with a Princeton chamber music student group, Classical Music Hour! The Princeton-Columbia collaboration is a new initiative, inspired by the annual spring joint concerts with Harvard's Brattle Street Chamber Players.
