College of Charleston SCHOOL OF THE ARTS

A Little Romance

The 2nd Monday Series at the College of Charleston School of the Arts will host its sister series, Charleston Music Fest, for a night of intimate chamber music on February 9. Faculty duo and graduates of the prestigious Moscow Conservatory, Natalia Khoma (cello) and Volodymyr Vynnytsky (piano), will present a romantic concert of Robert Schumann’s Fantasy pieces for cello and piano, Op. 73, Mykola Lysenko’s Elegy “Sorrow” for cello and piano, Franz Schubert’s Sonata Arpeggione D821 in A minor for cello and piano, Frederic Chopin’s Ballade in A flat Major No. 3, Op. 47 for piano, and more.

The Khoma-Vynnytsky Duo is a unique team of virtuoso soloists from the same city and with a similar background. Both were born in Lviv, Ukraine, studied at the Moscow Conservatory, and won distinguished International Competitions. Each artist has a prestigious career as a soloist, recitalist and chamber musician. Khoma and Vynnytsky have appeared individually and as a duo with major orchestras and premier chamber music series throughout the United States and Europe.
