    The Onyx Chamber Players, the new ensemble-in-residence at First Church, are gaining recognition for their fresh interpretations of masterworks from the Classical era. Onyx combines a unique blend of early music performance style with the brilliance and virtuosity of modern instruments. Their goal is to perform with a transparency of sound and clarity of musical concept, peeling away much of the 20th century heaviness that has infused many readings of these masterworks. Audiences and critics alike have hailed their musical energy, the exciting chemistry among the players and the musical intensity Onyx brings to their performances.

    Onyx Chamber Players are known for their insightful programming, presenting performance cycles of the complete works of Beethoven, Mozart, Brahms and Mendelssohn at Town Hall Seattle. Their Haydn/Mendelssohn series in '09-'10 received rave reviews in The Gathering Note and their Mozart cycle in 2007 was featured in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer (please see Reviews page). Onyx Chamber Players have been frequent guests on the radio, appearing live on KUOW-FM and KING-FM in Seattle.

    "These gifted artists and their rich display of these jewel-like works lift us into that glowing world of special illumination which music lovers dream of and only seldom find." - Bernard Z. Friedlander, Concert Reviews Online
