Consisting of the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s principal players, the Boston Symphony Chamber Players (BSCP) is one of the world’s most distinguished chamber ensembles.  With performances at Symphony Hall, Jordan Hall and regular appearances at Tanglewood, the BSCP maintain a busy touring schedule throughout the year.  The BSCP can perform virtually any work within the vast chamber music literature, expanding their range of repertoire, by enlisting other BSO members or distinguished artists such as Emanuel Ax and André Previn.  This year, the Boston Symphony Chamber Players’ program will feature the great Schubert Octet and a newly commissioned work by Yehudi Wyner celebrating the 50th anniversary of the ensemble.
