Founded in 1997, the Boston-based Walden Chamber Players has garnered a reputation for being one of the most exciting and versatile chamber groups performing today. Walden Chamber Players is comprised of twelve dynamic artists in various combinations of string, piano, and wind ensembles. The wide variety of instrumental groupings possible with this ensemble allows for great versatility and eclectic programming, a hallmark of the Walden Chamber Players. Members of the ensemble are versatile chamber artists and soloists who often perform at leading festivals throughout the United States and abroad. They are also sought-after teachers and lecturers and serve on the faculty of some of the country's premier musical teaching institutions, such as the New England Conservatory of Music, University of Michigan, Boston University, Longy School of Music and the Boston Conservatory.

Outreach to young audiences and under-served populations is central to the mission of the Walden Chamber Players. The ensemble is recognized nationally for its commitment to combining concert-performances with outreach in the local communities. This year Walden will hold its eighth annual Young Artist Competition, open to young musicians from Massachuetts. The Walden Chamber Players Young Artist Competition is designed to promote and encourage young musicians interested in the performance and study of chamber music. The winner performs in a public concert with the Walden Chamber Players and receives a cash prize. This competition is unique to the Walden Chamber Players in that it features a strong educational component in addition to the more standard contest format. 

Johnson String Instrument is a proud sponsor of the 2014 Young Artist Competition.
