The Chamber Players of the League-ISCM date from 1983, and was organized to present concerts each year at Merkin and Weill Recital Halls, as well as other prominent New York City venues. A flexible group, comprising some of new music’s most prominent advocates, the Chamber Players, over the years, have championed works by such established figures as John Adams, Milton Babbitt, Elliott Carter, Marion Gideon, John Harbison, Steve Reich and Joan Tower, masters of the early 20th century, such as Bartok, Stravinsky and Schoenberg, as well as emerging composers.
