HRCP showcases the most talented and dedicated young musicians coming from diverse backgrounds in Hampton Roads. They have the invaluable experience of performing side by side with acclaimed principal players from the Virginia Symphony Orchestra as well as award-winning jazz pianists and musicians from the area, under the artistic directorship of Maestro Jorge Aguirre.
Since its inception in 1994 as a not-for-profit organization, the Hampton Roads Chamber Players has provided exceptional musical instruction to its young musicians, while always underscoring the importance of tradition, building excellence, and giving back to one’s community.
HRCP student musicians play at numerous public recitals individually and in an orchestral setting at hospitals, orphanages, schools, and other venues. Playing side by side with professional performers as well as with their peers, they learn dedication, discipline, and teamwork at the same time that they are given the full breadth of exposure to the world of musical performance.
Student members of HRCP are selected by audition, and 15% receive some form of scholarship. Click here to learn more about how to join HRCP, support its programs, and help our young musicians aspire to greater musical achievements.
