He was the laureate of several piano and composition competitions in the Ukraine, including Heinrich Neuhaus Piano Competition in Kirovograd and Vorzel Chamber Music Competition in Kiev.  In 2005 he was accepted to New England Conservatory in Boston and graduated with a Bachelor degree in piano performance in 2009.  Belogurov has given numerous solo and chamber recitals in the New England area and throughout the country, performing at well-known venues, such as the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Duncan Recital Hall at the Shepherd School of Music, University of North Texas, Harvard Music Association, Slosberg Recital Hall at Brandeis University, Edward M.

Festival and Boston premiere of Carter’s “Catenaires”. 

Farah Darliette Lewis, soprano, is a Masters’ candidate and Presidential Scholar at the Longy School of Music in Cambridge.  Lewis specializes in both lyrical and florid singing and holds Art Song, Operatic Performance & Oratorio close to her heart.  In-home recitals presented on a theme special to the hosts and their guests are another favorite performance milieu.  Lewis holds bachelor degrees from both New England Conservatory and Tufts University, and currently studies with soprano Karyl Ryczek. 

Born in Pennsylvania, Rachel Hassinger began studying music at an early age: composing, accompanying, and competing in juried piano competitions. Before training in piano performance at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, Hassinger studied with Benjamin Whitten, winning the Young Artists Concerto Competition, which featured her with the Delaware Symphony.  Hassinger served as accompanist, assistant conductor, and Artistic Director of the Boston Women's Rainbow Chorus. She has performed with the Oberlin Chamber Orchestra, Oberlin Contemporary Music Ensemble, for a theatrical production of Gospel at Colonus, and with the Kairos vocal ensemble, among other collaborations. She works as the Online Communications Manager for a national nonprofit in Boston, and freelances as a guest conductor and accompanist throughout the greater Boston area.

            Soprano Meena Malik began singing in her native Japan.  Malik graduated Magna Cum Laude with departmental honors from University of Redlands with a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance and a Minor in German. Malik completed a Master of Music at New England Conservatory with Academic Honors.  Malik is a member of Voci Angelica Trio, an ethnically diverse group of three New England Conservatory trained musicians that perform folk music from all over the world.  Currently, Malik freelances and teaches in the Boston area and continues her private studies with Carole Haber. Malik lives in Jamaica Plain with her husband, cellist Aristides Rivas.

Janice Weber is a master of the classics, especially famous for her interpretations of Liszt, including a world recording premiere of Liszt's 1838 Transcendental Etudes.  A summa cum laude graduate of the Eastman School of Music, Miss Weber has performed at the White House, Carnegie Hall, Wigmore Hall, National Gallery of Art, and Boston's Symphony Hall.  Weber also recorded Liszt's last Hungarian Rhapsody, one of only two living pianists to be included in a compendium of historic performances by nineteen legendary artists. This disc subsequently won the International Liszt Prize.  She has appeared with the Boston Pops, Chautauqua Symphony, New Jersey Symphony, Hilton Head Orchestra, Sarajevo Philharmonic, and Syracuse Symphony in concertos of Hanson, Sowerby, Stenhammar, Bernstein, and Leroy Anderson as well as the standard repertoire.

Yakov Zamir has performed Liszt songs in India, Israel, England and the United States, and sports the wide vocal range required for the execution of this florid repertoire. A graduate of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, Zamir has performed with orchestras, choirs and in concert series throughout the United States, and with the Israel Philharmonic, the Rehovot Chamber Orchestra, the Kibbutz Chamber Orchestra, Les Violons du Roi David, the Jerusalem Baroque Orchestra, and various other instrumental and choral ensembles in Israel.  In addition to singing in cities, towns and on kibbutzim in Israel, Zamir has also performed in six cities in India; on the stage of an ancient Greek amphitheatre on the island of Cyprus; in the Langholtskirkju in Reykavik, Iceland; and at Covent Garden Opera House in London.
