A Celebration of Musical Bridges’ founding artists - award winning jazz pianist Valeri Grokhovski, piano, Mark Cheikhet, violin, and
partnership with the members of the San Antonio Symphony. In high demand globally, Valeri Grokhovski was one of the first Musical Bridges’ artists, and a favorite of San Antonio audiences. Blending Jazz and Classical styles, this brilliant pianist juggles Bach, Mozart, Puccini and Rachmaninov with ease, giving their work new life through jazz improvisation. The program will be enriched by the violin timbre, played by Mark Cheikhet, renown for “…his warm and beautiful sound [which] transforms the listener to another world.”
Cheikhet founded and was first violinist in the “International String Quartet,” which played in Hollywood and became well known for
imaginative interpretations of new works by modern composers in the Los Angeles area.
