THEATER CHAMBER PLAYERS, founded by Leon Fleisher and Dina Koston in 1968, is one of Washington, D.C.'s most influential and innovative chamber music ensembles. The ensemble performed first at the Washington Theater Club, then in 1973 became the first chamber-ensemble-in-residence at the Smithsonian Institution. When the Kennedy Center opened in 1979, the group was invited to become its first and only resident ensemble, a position held for fifteen seasons. Theater Chamber Players performs regularly at the Kennedy Center and other Washington, D.C. and suburban locations. Hailed by The Washington Post as "one of the most significant musical organizations on the Washington scene", Theater Chamber Players is committed to introducing its audience to works by contemporary American and European composers which are not heard on other series, along with standard chamber music repertoire. Over thirty distinguished musicians, many of whom have internationally acclaimed careers, perform regularly with Theater Chamber Players.
