The Gallery Players of Niagara began presenting concerts in 1994 and has since become one of Niagara’s most prominent presenters of classical chamber music. Each season we present a vast array of chamber music, from Vivaldi to Brahms to folk-inspired music to improvised music for silent movies. We commission and perform new Canadian works, present baroque repertoire on period instruments, and cover all the standard chamber music repertoire in between!

Our organization presents concerts in many of Niagara’s churches, the Rodman Hall Arts Centre in St. Catharines, the Niagara Artists Centre, and at the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre. The group has a core membership of approximately 15 regular performers, supplementing its ranks each season with invited guests. The core players also perform with the Niagara Symphony, Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony, Toronto Symphony, and many other smaller arts organizations in the Golden Horseshoe.

Within our core group the Gallery Players serves as an umbrella for two smaller ensembles, the Eybler Quartet, and Glissandi.
