Chesapeake Chamber Music (CCM) will present a concert on May 4 featuring the Russian Trio, Silver Medalist and winner of the Audience Choice Award in last year’s Chesapeake Chamber Music’s international competition. The concert, which will be held on May 4, 2013 at 8 p.m. at the Cadby Theatre on the Campus of Chesapeake College in Wye Mills, MD, will benefit future CCM competitions.

Russian Trio 2013 (400 x 266)The Russian Trio, whose members share a Russian heritage, met while pursuing graduate degrees at The Peabody Conservatory of the Johns Hopkins University. Pianist Katherine Harris Rick made her debut at age nine in her hometown of Yakutsk, Siberia, winning the Republic of Yakutia Competition for Young Pianists. She went on to gather accolades from international competitions in seven countries. Violinist Nikita Borisevich swept onto the Russian stage at age 15 as one of today’s most promising young virtuosos, winning a Russian National Competition for Violinists and Cellists called “The Magical Bow” in Perm, Russia. Cellist Dmitry Volkov performs solo concerts across the globe and was the winner of the 2009 Carlos Prieto International Cello Competition and the 2011 Midland-Odessa Symphony National Young Artist Competition. The trio has performed extensively throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe. They will perform selections by Haydn, Mendelssohn, and Shostakovich.

Dr. Robert Burger, a member of the CCM Board and chairman of the CCM Competition Committee, is extremely pleased to be able to host the Russian Trio for this benefit concert, stating, “We are very fortunate that this talented, internationally renowned group of young artists has chosen to support our biennial competition by giving this performance. It is a wonderful opportunity for those who appreciate classical music to attend a concert of this caliber at such a reasonable cost.”
