Ensembles

Our four Boise Phil Chamber Players ensembles showcase some of the best and brightest talent of the orchestra. Whether they’re performing at our Boise Phil Chamber Players concerts, our annual Pub Crawl, or at In Roads events throughout the community, they deliver intimate, moving, and uplifting performances time and again.

The Langroise Trio

Established in 1991 with a gift from arts patron Gladys Langroise, the Langroise Trio are Artists-in-residence at The College of Idaho, where they form the string faculty. They have performed on chamber music series in Alabama, Florida, Idaho, Oregon and Washington, have released four CDs, and the Trio was one of the first groups to give an “internet archived” concert on the Millennium Stage of the Kennedy Center.

With its personnel among some of the foremost musicians in the country, the Langroise Trio ensembles offer an eclectic repertoire. Contemporary works by Idaho composers Jim Cockey and David Alan Earnest have been written especially for them and they stylishly play music from the Romantic, Classical, Baroque and Renaissance eras as well.
