The Williams Chamber Players is a faculty chamber ensemble that presents concerts for the college and community throughout the academic year. Repertoire for concerts is drawn from the standard chamber music with special attention to music of the 20th and 21st centuries, and to music by Williams composers. Musicians are normally drawn from the ranks of artists in residence, artist associates, and other faculty members and visiting artists at Williams.
The Williams Chamber Players was founded in 1999 and is coordinated by Doris Stevenson.
