THE RITZ CHAMBER PLAYERS are hailed by the Baltimore Sun as “one of the most interesting and dynamic ensembles to emerge in recent years.” Boasting some of the world’s most renowned musicians that have African and African-American origins, Ritz brings a fresh energy to the classical music genre by telling the story of African American composers with special nuance and vivid interpretations. Its members perform with prestigious organizations such as the New York Philharmonic, Boston Symphony, Chicago Symphony, Pittsburgh Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, and the London Symphony.
The Ritz Chamber Players were founded in 2002 by clarinetist and Artistic Director Terrance Patterson.
MISSION STATEMENT: To foster the appreciation of chamber music through performances and educational outreach featuring preeminent African-American musicians and composers, with an emphasis on building audiences and arts inclusion that reflect our diverse society.
