Married duo Soroka and Greene have toured and recorded extensively. Their Naxos recording of Four Violin Sonatas by William Bolcom was selected as a Recording of the Month with the highest ranking for both artistry and sound quality by Classics Today, and received praising reviews in distinguished journals, such as Gramophone and The Strad.

Distinguished members of the Pittsburgh Symphony Marta Krechkovsky and Randolph Kelly join forces with world-renowned College of Charleston faculty members Natalia Khoma and Volodymyr Vynnytsky for a program of Romantic works.

In this all-Beethoven concert, Anna Rabinova guest stars. This accomplished violinist is the winner of the 16th International Violin Competition in Belgrade, the Bach International Com-petition in Leipzig, Germany, and the 1993 Concerto ComCom-petition at The Juilliard School.
