No matter the educational setting — an auditorium filled with third-graders in Silver City, New Mexico, a lecture hall at the University of Nebraska, teaching studios at the Yale School of Music — The American Chamber Players are in their element.
The members of the ACP are remarkably talented performers, but they are also wonderful teachers who bring a rare combination of skill, experience, warmth, and humor to their programs and presentations.
Miles Hoffman, artistic director of the ensemble and host of the ACP’s children’s programs, is one of America’s best known and most highly regarded music educators. He is the author of the delightful NPR Classical Music Companion: An Essential Guide for Enlightened Listening, now in its tenth printing from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and for thirteen years – from 1989 to 2002 -- he brought his sparkling musical commentary, “Coming to Terms,” to National Public Radio’s Performance Today. As Music Commentator for NPR’s flagship news program, Morning Edition‚ he is now heard regularly by a national audience of some fourteen million people.
