About This Performance
As the nation’s first chamber music ensemble composed solely of accomplished musicians spanning the African diaspora, the Ritz Chamber Players brings fresh perspective and energy to classical music. Spotlighting repertoire by African American composers, their PCMS debut program promises novel sounds from “one of the most interesting and dynamic ensembles to emerge in recent years” (Baltimore Sun).
