Through concerts and educational outreach programs, the Equinox Chamber Players: ~ Interpret history and current events through music ~ Celebrate local culture and history ~ Introduce music of many different countries and cultures ~ Align music with the study of relationships between people and environment ~ Allow accessibility to the creative process of composition and storytelling ~ Introduce classical music performance and contemporary composers to many considered underserved in access to arts and arts education ~ Increase awareness of the importance of music education in our schools ~ Contribute to the library of contemporary and educational music The Equinox Chamber Players have been featured in the PBS documentary Continental Harmony, and also on PBS, NPR and local radio and TV stations, and have collaborated with some of St. Louis’ finest institutions, as well as with national and international associations. The ensemble has been featured in Chamber Music, the magazine of Chamber Music America, in an article on the synthesis of classical and ‘world’ music, and in St. Louis Magazine and St. Louis Women on the Move.
