Since 2011, we have made it our mission
to increase the Accessibility of music
Across the CITY OF DALLAS.
The mission of Bridge the Gap Chamber Players is to make music of all kinds more accessible to the community through performances of a variety of genres in non-traditional locations and education programs in the Dallas area.
Bridge the Gap Chamber Players (BtG) is a semi-classical chamber music organization based in Dallas, Texas comprised of young professional artists and arts administrators with a passion for sharing their love of music through free public classical concerts. Rooted in classical music, we are proponents of all music and pride ourselves on variety in our programming.
Bridge the Gap recognizes that new music is being created every day by living composers, and believes that this music deserves the same recognition and attention as established repertoire. Bridge the Gap frequently works with composers and regularly commissions new works.
Beyond performing, Bridge the Gap understands the importance of music education and leads after school music programs at Dallas ISD elementary schools, teaching music fundamentals and bringing musicians in for children to enjoy and learn from.

Partnering with the University Crossing Public Improvement District, Bridge the Gap brings free performances to Mockingbird Station every Friday at 6:00 PM outside the Angelika Film Center. Music on Mockingbird has hosted many diverse groups such as brass quintets, singer-songwriters, woodwind quintets, electronic musicians, and jazz combos.
bridge the gap education program
As part of our education initiative, Bridge the Gap Chamber Players hosts an after school music program in Dallas ISD for 4th and 5th graders. Supplementing their in-school music education, we bring in musicians and SMU music education majors to learn and make music together.
