Bulgarian violinist Chavdar Parashkevov has captivated audiences throughout Europe and the US with his sensual artistic approach, sensitivity, and virtuosic technique. He has been awarded a number of prizes from various national and international competitions. Mr. Parashkevov's diverse career has included numerous appearances with different orchestras. Currently, Chavdar combines performing and teaching careers, and plays for the Houston Grand Opera and Houston Ballet Orchestras. Biography

Viktor Valkov has been highly acclaimed by critics as "lion of the keyboard" and "sensational." Winner of the 2015 Astral Artists National Auditions, and Gold medalist at the 2012 New Orleans International Piano Competition, Mr. Valkov's concert activities reflect a vast interest in the chamber music repertoire, as well as lesser known piano music. Viktor Valkov is currently a Visiting Professor of Piano at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City. Biography
