Da Capo Chamber PlayersUMBC's Department of Music presents the Da Capo Chamber Players in concert on Sunday, April 3 at 7:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Recital Hall.

Since their founding in 1970, the Da Capo Chamber Players have established themselves as one of the foremost new music groups in the United States. The group's mission is to give new works the dedicated attention and exciting performances consistent with the highest musical standards in traditional repertoire. Winners of the Walter W. Naumburg Chamber Music Award in 1973, for 18 years they were one of the highest funded chamber groups by the National Endowment for the Arts. Da Capo is a leader in building a strong heritage of present-day American chamber music: the group is known not only for exceptional artistry but also for the wealth of new compositions written for them.

Their program features the following works:
* Marc Mellits (b. 1966): Spam (1995)
* Charles Wuorinin (b. 1938): Bearbeitungen über Das Glogauer Liederbuch (1962)
* Igor Stravinsky (1882–1971): Suite from L'histoire du soldat (1918–19)
* Victoria Bond (b. 1945): Quintet (1970, revised for Da Capo)
* Gabriela Lena Frank (b. 1972): Cuatro Bosquejos Pre-Incaicos (Four Pre-Inca Sketches) (2006)
* Shen Yiwen (b. 1986): Quintet (2008)
