Philip Setzer, featured artist

Violinist Philip Setzer, a founding member of the Emerson String Quartet, was born in Cleveland, Ohio, and began studying violin at the age of five with his parents, both former violinists in the Cleveland Orchestra. He continued his studies with Josef Gingold and Rafael Druian, and later at the Juilliard School with Oscar Shumsky.

Joanna Kaczorowska

Acclaimed as an enormously accomplished violinist, Joanna Kaczorowska's playing features uncommon refinement, passionate expression and tonal sensitivity. Her artistry combines rare talent with ferocious enthusiasm: Joanna has an irrepressible passion for musical experimentation and discovery. In both classical and contemporary repertoire and world music traditions, Joanna has an ability to express herself in the deepest personal sense through her music.

Molly Morkoski

Pianist Molly Morkoski has performed as soloist and collaborative artist throughout the U.S., Europe, the Caribbean, and Japan. Her playing has been recognized by The New York Times as “strong, profiled, nuanced . . . beautifully etched . . . . an energetic and focused player . . . . with flexibility and warmth . . .” and The Boston Globe called her “outstanding”.

Yves Dharamraj

Captivating his audiences with a “primer of technical feats” (New York Sun), and his warm, lush tone “that might be described as something akin to rich old wood” (Boston Musical Intelligencer), Yves Dharamraj has earned a worldwide reputation as a dynamic cellist who blends an immaculate command of the instrument with deep musical understanding to express his fresh and elegant interpretations.

Arnaud Ghillebaert

Originally from Paris, Arnaud Ghillebaert has performed as an orchestra musician with The Academy of Saint Martin in the Fields (Sir Neville Mariner) and the London Symphony Orchestra. He toured Europe for two summers with the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra under the baton of Sir Colin Davis and Herbert Bloomstedt in venues such as the Royal Albert Hall in London or the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and is now part of the Artosphere Festival Orchestra (Corrado Rovaris, musical director).

Philip Carter
