About Us

The Walden Players is made up of only the finest, most seasoned musicians in Northeast Ohio.

Locally they perform with acclaimed ensembles such as the Columbus Symphony, Cleveland Opera, Akron Symphony, Erie Philharmonic, Youngstown Symphony, and Warren Philharmonic Orchestras.

Outside of Ohio Walden members have performed in the North Carolina Symphony, Jacksonville Symphony, New World Symphony, Fort Worth Symphony, New Orleans Symphony, and Aspen Festival Orchestras.

Our members have also performed and recorded as jazz, pop and rock musicians with many groups, including the Cleveland Jazz Orchestra, Styx, Yes, Mannheim Steamroller, Josh Groban, Sarah Brightman, Clay Aiken, Michael W. Smith, the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Ray Charles, Johnny Cash, and even Bugs Bunny.

Walden Players were founded by the legendary clarinetist, Robert (Bob) Fitzer.  Bob performed at Carnegie Hall at the age of 19, recorded Grammy Award-winning music and collaborated with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, among many other credits.  Since the untimely passing of our dear friend and colleague  in 2007, the surviving members of Walden Players have striven to continue Bob’s mission to make concert-hall quality music available outside the concert hall and in the homes, workplaces, and gathering places of the community.
