We have a few new residents, so if you see them, please welcome them! And if you come across others who might be interested in joining our community, I'm happy to speak with them directly, and Jamie has placed books with CDS Info notecards inside in strategic places in all sims. Remember, too, that our portal has a LOT of information (yay Brian!). All you need to remember is "" and the portal opens!

Duo Appassionato possesses exceptional virtuoso ability and musical harmony rarely found in two instrmentalists of the same genre performing together. Both active solo performers of unsurpassed spirit and flair, the duo has a refreshing stage presence and often explores a repertoire that is rarely performed because of its unusually demanding nature. They project " virtuosic devilry and imagination..." and their playing is " stunning and incredibly well matched". Their presence is a highlight to any recital or concert stage.
Violinist Izabela Spiewak began her international music career at the age of 5, and was awarded a scholarship to a music school for gifted young artists at the age of 8. She is performed chamber music concerts, recorded albums with musicians such as Leonard Bernstein, Eduardo Mata, Placido Domingo and Yehudi Menuhin.
