The extraordinary Alexander Gavrylyuk, now Artistic Advisor for Chautauqua's Piano Program, returns for his 13th season at Chautauqua. Highlights of Mr. Gavrylyuk's 2017/18 season include recitals in New Zealand, Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney, Carnegie Hall, and what was hailed as an "electrifying performance" broadcast live at the 2017 Proms in Royal Albert Hall with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. Following the Proms performance, Limelight magazine said "It is refreshing to experience completely new interpretations of traditional masterpieces by a monumental master of the piano who is, also, modest (and not falsely so), who is unassuming and completely dedicated to his art." On Thursday, July 12, he performs with the Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra. Mark your calendars for two evenings to celebrate with this master.

Black Violin is a mash-up of classical, hip-hop, rock and R&B featuring the classically trained violin duo of Kevin "Kev Marcus" Sylvester and Wilner "Wil" Baptiste. These powerful musicians offer violin virtuosity within their own genre-bending style of music. Black Violin has collaborated with the likes of P. Diddy, Kanye West, 50 Cent, Tom Petty, Aerosmith, Aretha Franklin and The Eagles. "Black Violin works hard, but makes it all look like play -- Sometimes they play with the intense seriousness of orchestral soloists, at others they fiddle as if at a hoedown, at still others they strum the violin and viola like guitars." --The New York Times
