The Oakwood Chamber Players gets its name from the retirement center where its first concerts took place. The ensemble continues to play at the Oakwood Village auditorium, but has begun repeating its programs at the First Unitarian Society as well. One advantage of the latter location is easier parking.
The group's programming concepts are eclectic. Though they rely mainly on traditional chamber-music repertory, the OCP often offers obscure or new works as the occasion and available musicians permit. The quality of the performances ranges from good to excellent, and audiences enthusiastically support the effort.
