Funded in Part by Mattie Jennie Fund
Hailed a “firebrand” (Incident Light.com) and noted for her “supreme panache and charming effortless phrasing” (The Boston Musical Intelligencer), Colombian-American cellist Christine Lamprea was the First Prize winner of both the 2013 Schadt National String and 2013 Sphinx competitions. Daniel Anastasio is a multi-faceted artist whose “technical prowess and emotional sensitivity” is imbued with an intellectual curiosity (Rivard Report). Conducted by Leon Fleisher with the Ithaca College Chamber Orchestra, Anastasio’s performance of Beethoven’s 3rd Piano Concerto was “the highlight to everyone’s ears, if the full-house standing ovation were any indication.” (ECM Reviews) Learn More
Sponsored by Russell Hill Rogers Fund for the Arts
Acclaimed as “the premier men’s vocal ensemble in the United States” (Fanfare), Cantus is known for its trademark warmth and blend, innovative programming and engaging performances of music, ranging from the Renaissance to the 21st century. “The most striking thing about the nine-voice male a cappella group Cantus is how much heart they put into their singing.” (Opera News) Learn More
“American concert organist Nathan Laube is one of the world’s young top-flight virtuosos…. [T]he fluency of Nathan Laube’s musicianship was truly amazing.” (Cambridge News). In addition to serving on the faculty of the Eastman School of Music as Assistant Professor of Organ, Nathan Laube’s extensive recital career includes major venues spanning four continents. Many of his live performances have been featured on American Public Media’s “Pipedreams.” Learn More

One of the most exciting young artists to emerge in recent years, Martina Filjak is garnering international praise for her poetic passion and technical mastery at the keyboard as well as for her charismatic personality and magnetic stage presence. “Brilliant, sensitive and imaginative playing with resourcefulness of technique and naturalness of musicality…a striking individuality…a pianist to watch.’’ (The New York Times) Learn More
