|January 9th, 2014|
|City of Angels, Saxophone Quartet
Their music is a combination of jazz and classical works, some of which are the groups own arrangements and some original works for saxophone quartet. Their impressive display of technique, versatility and style is a veritable delight. They are the past recipients of the Coleman Chamber Music Award and the Monterey Bay Chamber Music Award. They have performed extensively in the US and toured Russia.

|Helix Collective, flute, oboe, cello and piano
Los Angeles-based Helix Collective performs a high-energy, out-of-the-box mix of world, classical and rock n' roll. The ensemble, at home in nightclubs and on the concert stage, "has a little something for everyone: those who like their classics straight up, with a contemporary edge to it, or with populist appeal” (Audiophile Audition).

|Dúo del Sol, guitar and violin
Deemed “avant sonic acrobats” by the L.A. Weekly, Dúo del Sol’s music sparkles with kinetic energy. Their expansive style can be compared to the likes of Radiohead while their raw energy conjures up the spirits of Reinhardt and Grappelli. Based in Los Angeles, violinist Javier Orman (Montevideo, Uruguay) and guitarist Tom Farrell (Chicago, Illinois) excite audiences and bring energy and passion to the stage with their original music.

|Triada combines the unique talents of Nikola, Petar and Vasil Chekardzhikov, forming one of the most brilliant guitar ensembles now performing. The three brothers are individually virtuoso guitarists, and their intuitive sense of ensemble gives a synergy that makes their concerts very special and exciting events. Performances by Triada feature innovative repertoire, including traditional classics, modern favorites, and vibrant, colorful ethnic music to engage and delight any audience. Programs usually include powerful works that composers have written specifically for this superlative ensemble.
