Acclaimed by the New York Times as a “deeply expressive violinist,” Rhodes is gaining broad recognition as a multifaceted musician with a distinctive and sincere musical voice. Her generosity of spirit on stage is contagious, making her one of the most sought-after violinists and chamber musicians of her generation. She is a founding member of the Naumburg Award–winning ensemble Trio Cavatina.
In addition to teaching at the Setnor School, Wood is cellist with Symphoria: Central New York’s professional orchestra, and an active recitalist in the CNY area. He recently performed with the Trans-Siberian Orchestra in Syracuse and in New York City for an appearance on “Good Morning America.”
Karpoff has performed as both soloist and collaborative pianist on four continents, including prominent venues in Germany, France, Luxembourg, Belgium, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Ireland, Finland, Italy, China and the United States. As guest artist at major music festivals in the U.S. and Europe, he has collaborated with many of America’s foremost musicians.
