Villa Musica Chamber Players (VMCP)

Villa Musica is thrilled to announce the return of our newest ensemble – the Villa Musica Chamber Players.This group of musicians comprises students, professionals, and amateurs from operating rooms, classrooms, offices, and all walks of life. The love for chamber music in San Diego is alive and well in people’s homes, so we’re combining forces to share our love with our community, YOU!

VMCP is unique in its approach, staying nimble with small numbers, we aim to showcase the dedication of a small few, venturing from parking lots to church pews. New in this 2023 concert series, we are featuring our very own Villa Musica faculty members as soloists in concertos and art pieces alike, ranging from classics by Schubert to Boccherini.

We look forward to making music with you!
