Founded by pianist Craig Combs, the Paramount Chamber Players began as a group of five musicians playing chamber music. Now in our 17th concert season, TPCP has expanded into one of the regions’ most significant ensembles, having featured dozens of local musicians and guest artists, commissions from local composers, and a prestigious award for young musicians given annually through the Bristol Music Club Scholarship Auditions.
TPCP presents three unique programs every concert season, brought to you in four live performances at venues across Eastern Tennessee and Western Virginia.
