Macondo Chamber Players (MCP) stands at the forefront of an exciting new generation in classical music. Founded in 2012 by violinist Jose Romero and pianist Carlos Vargas, MCP brings together established and emerging artists from Latin America and the world to perform chamber music, teach young people, and encourage international understanding.
MCP invites guest artists who come together in different combinations for each concert, providing audiences with exceptional performances of a wide variety of repertoire. MCP’s exciting programs feature masterpieces of the standard repertoire, along with lesser-known Latin-American folk, classical, and popular music.
While committed to the highest standards of music making, MCP is also passionately committed to education. MCP’s educational programs follow the belief that artists today have an undeniable moral commitment to teach, share, and collaborate with young people, especially those coming from the poorest strata of society.
Macondo Chamber Players, one of the only international chamber music organizations focused in Latin America, offers a unique cultural exchange between local audiences, and artists from all over the world. By attending a MCP performance, or experiencing our educational programs, you will undoubtedly witness the humbling efforts of our artists, and hopefully gain a new appreciation for different cultures, music, and life.
During the 2013/2014 season MCP tours Colombia appearing in Sala Beethoven in Cali, Teatro Santo Domingo and Auditorio Fabio Lozano in Bogotá, Sala Suramericana in Medellín, Teatro Municipal in Buga, and Teatro Guillermo Valencia in Popayán as a part of Festival de Música Religiosa. MCP also makes its Ecuador debut concerts in La Casa de la Música in Quito and Teatro Municipal in Esmeraldas. In addition, the group will give the Colombian and Ecuadorian premiere of Osvaldo Golijov's Tenebrae. Future engagements include appearances in Santo Domingo, San Miguel, La Havana, Rosario, Brussells, and various Colombian cities. MCP will also be joining forces with Tatyana Bronstein and her team to produce a long-awaited documentary.
