This is chamber music as it was meant to be heard: the communion of gifted artists in an intimate, beautiful setting, among music lovers and friends. After the performance, patrons can mingle with the performers, a lovely postscript to a perfect concert experience. Born into a family of musicians with direct links to Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff, Olga Kern began studying piano at the age of five, and won the Rachmaninoff International Piano Competition at the age of seventeen. She went on to win a historic Gold Medal at the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, the first woman to do so in more than thirty years. She is now recognized as one of her generation's great artists. Ms. Kern steps into the shoes of the Virginia Arts Festival's founding Director of Chamber Music programming, André-Michel Schub, who curated unforgettable musical experiences for artists and audiences at the Festival for 22 years.
