The American Chamber Players (Piano, flute and strings) were formed by Miles Hoffman from a core group of musicians from the Library of Congress Chamber Festival.

They are the resident ensemble at the Kreeger Museum’s June Chamber Festival in Washington. Critics and audiences alike have enthusiastically praised their varied instrumental combinations.  Fans of NPR will recall the enlightening programs when Miles was a frequent contributor on NPR’s “Performances Today.”
