The 2nd Monday Series will host Charleston Music Fest, both part of the College of Charleston School of the Arts, for a night of intimate chamber music on Monday, Feb. 11.
Graduates of the prestigious Moscow Conservatory, faculty duo Natalia Khoma (cello) and Volodymyr Vynnytsky (piano) will present a versatile concert of works by J.S. Bach, Ludwig van Beethoven, Carlo Alfredo Piatti and Myroslav Skoryk, plus the beloved Rococo variations for Cello by Peter Tchaikovsky.
Natalia Khoma – Volodymyr Vynnytsky Duo is the unique team of two virtuoso soloists from the same city and with a similar background. Both were born in Lviv, Ukraine, studied at the prestigious Moscow Conservatory, and are International Competitions winners. Each has a distinguished career as a soloist, recitalist and chamber musician, and has appeared individually and as a duo with major orchestras and premier chamber music series throughout the United States and Europe. With performances which have been hailed around the world as “most excellent,” “perfectly controlled and beautifully expressive,” “magical…deeply touching,” “with virtuosity and admirable feeling,” “passion, profundity and poignancy,” “cellist pianist solo soulmates,” the Duo is a most electrifying musical partnership.
Housed within the College of Charleston School of the Arts, CofC Concerts includes four extraordinary series: International Piano Series, Magnetic South, Charleston Music Fest and 2nd Monday Series, featuring international, national and regional artists.
