About Us

Created in 2013, the Incidental Chamber Players is a music collective that puts music featuring woodwinds in the limelight. Our organization takes a unique approach in designing programs by focusing on a theme, then inviting all members of the collective to contribute in bringing the programs to life.

At its core, the ensemble is comprised of a woodwind quartet plus piano, and expands to include strings, bass, harp, and beyond in order to present the full spectrum of chamber music repertoire that involves woodwinds.

I.C.Players frequently performs at the First Unitarian Church of Pittsburgh, and have presented programs at venues including the Pittsburgh International Airport, Wallace Presbyterian Church, Canterbury Senior Center, Seneca Hills Senior Center, Nordy’s Place at the University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University, Schenley Park Café and Visitor Center, and Biddle’s Escape.
