A finalist at this year's American Pianist Awards, Dominic Cheli is a St. Louis native whose playing has been described as “spontaneous yet perfect, the best of how a young person can play.” (Symphony Magazine). His rapidly advancing career has included a Walt Disney Concert Hall Debut with legendary conductor Valery Gergiev described as “mesmerizing” (LA Times), and a Carnegie Hall recital debut in 2019. He recently recorded his second album on the Naxos label of the music of Liszt/Schubert, and an album of the music of Erwin Schulhoff on the Delos Label.


The Balourdet Quartet, based in Boston, Massachusetts, is currently in residence at the New England Conservatory’s Professional String Quartet Program. The quartet received the Grand Prize at the 2021 Concert Artists Guild Victor Elmaleh Competition, the top prize in the 2021 Premio Paolo Borciani in Reggio Emilia, Italy, and the Gold Medal in the 2020 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition at Notre Dame University. Its members are Angela Bae and Justin DeFilippis, violin; Benjamin Zannoni, viola; and Russell Houston, cello.
