Her playing has been hailed by the New York Times as "impassioned." She's also the president of the Music School of Delaware in Wilmington, where the Serafin Summer Music Festival concerts will be held.
Hal Grossman is Professor of Violin at the University of Louisville, and is the founder and creator of The Grossman Method, a course of study that addresses musician injuries.
