SOUTHAMPTON, England, April 24 — The Boston Symphony Chamber Players, one of the world’s most distinguished chamber music ensembles, will perform on Queen Mary 2’s eastbound Transatlantic Crossing departing New York on September 4. Cunard Line, the “Official Cruise Line” of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, will welcome these players and the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s esteemed Artistic Administrator, Anthony Fogg, for special performances and lectures held throughout the voyage.
The Boston Symphony Chamber Players’ engagement is a highlight this season of many illuminating performances and appearances that comprise “Cunard InsightsÃ¢â€žÂ¢”, the Line’s award-winning enrichment program, which is now available on all three of its celebrated ocean liners. “Live classical music remains a Cunard hallmark to this day and showcasing a world-class chamber orchestra of this notoriety will be a truly memorable event for our guests,” said Carol Marlow, president of Cunard Line.
The Boston Symphony Chamber Players were founded in 1964 to ensure the BSO could share the unique qualities of the full chamber repertoire with concertgoers. Cunard Line is entering its second season as sponsor of the Boston Pops at Tanglewood Series and the Tanglewood Jazz Festival.
