National Chamber Players

The National Chamber Players have been the resident chamber ensemble at Episcopal High School since 2004. Made up of members of the National Symphony Orchestra and other prominent artists and under the artistic direction of N.S.O. cellist James Lee, the National Chamber Players perform four concerts per year in the Ainslie Arts Center's Pendleton Hall. The concerts, featuring ensembles ranging from solo instruments to chamber orchestra, are appreciated by the school community, critics, and a devoted following for their innovative and balanced programs and their virtuoso performances.

All concerts take place in Pendleton Hall at 7:45 p.m. Concerts are free and open to the public.

In general, concerts are not canceled because of weather.
