The Ideal Cut - Homecoming Concert
Saturday, Oct. 20, 8 p.m.
The ideal cut of a diamond achieves the perfect balance between fire and brilliance. Daria Rabotkina, winner of the 2007 Concert Artists Guild International Competition, has been lauded as “…a pianist full of fire and warmth” (The Plain-Dealer). Whether in front of an orchestra, in the recital hall or in a chamber music setting, Ms. Rabotkina impresses audiences and critics alike with her “clearly prodigious musical gifts” (The Washington Post)
A Christmas Carol

A Cut Above the Rest
