Columbia Classical Performers “In Concert”

Written by

Lerner 555

Works by Maurice Ravel, Felix Mendelssohn and J.S. Bach.

Founded in 2001, Columbia Classical Performers seeks to support the
community of classical musicians on campus who wish to perform in an
intimate, stress-free environment for their peers. CCP works to give
musicians performance opportunities by providing venues all over
campus, coordinating recital logistics, publicizing events, and
planning post-concert receptions. CCP has a dual purpose: to allow
musicians an outlet to share their music with the public, and to
provide the Columbia community with free, high-quality classical
music.

Past recital venues have included Philosophy Hall, Lerner Hall, and
Miller Theatre, and performers have included violinists and pianists
to oboists and a mandolin player. The diverse programming over the
years has included staples of repertoire such as works by Beethoven
and Mozart, to new music composed by students and leading contemporary
composers like Esa-Pekka Salonen.
