Monarch Chamber Players is a collective of Houston-based professional musicians committed to presenting live outdoor classical music concerts. Founded in October 2020, Monarch has safely presented over 70 socially-distanced concerts as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We bring our music directly to your neighborhood by performing at any venue you can think of, including parks, churches, farms, gas stations, and our most popular stage, your own front porch! Our concerts provide a space for friends, neighbors, and communities to connect with each other and with the musicians, as well as an informal setting to become more intimately familiar with classical music. Comprising of musicians who have performed around the world with top professional orchestras, the musician roster consists of a core wind quintet as well as a full lineup of strings, brass, and percussion.
All events are outdoors. Performers are tested for COVID-19 in advance of all performances or are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Audiences will remain 12 feet from wind instrument musicians and 6 feet from other musicians and audience members.
