GALLO CHAMBER PLAYERS
The Gallo Chamber Players are an early music ensemble based in Vancouver, British Columbia. The members include Jiten Beairsto, Elana Cooper and Majka Demcak on violin, Emily Burton on cello and Connor Page on harpsichord, who met while studying in the Barque Orchestra Mentorship Program at the University of British Columbia. They are all recipients of the Early Music Vancouver Scholarship award.
The GCP violinists, Jiten, Elana and Majka, and harpsichordist, Connor, performed in Early Music Vancouver's Bach Festival in the summer of 2018, where they were featured in the Emerging Artists recital. The ensemble was formed soon after working with cellist, Emily, in the fall and performed their debut concert at St. Philip's Anglican Church in January 2019.
On a mission to bring the beauty of historically informed Baroque and Classical music to their audiences, the GCP include a variety of pieces and styles in each concert and aim to engage their concert-goers with conversation during and after performances. They are also pleased to invite other fellow Baroque musicians to join them for various project-based concerts.
