+ About the Artists

Jade Simmons infuses every project with her unique brand of communicative powers. In 2005 she made her debut with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra in the Corigliano Piano Concerto, and her performance with pianist Ursula Oppens of the duo piano works by Tania León at Aaron Davis Hall was listed as one of that Year’s Best by ARTFORUM magazine. An artist with a social conscience that moves her to action, she speaks to youth groups across the country, founded the national schools program Where Do You Stand?! and created the educational program Mozart on the Move. Jade is the first fellow for CAG’s New Music/New Places initiative which creates new audiences for concert music through performance opportunities in non-traditional venues such as cafes, bars and art galleries.


Svet Stoyanov captivates audiences with his “understated but unmistakable virtuosity.” (The New York Times) 2006 – 07 engagements include an educational residency and concerto with the Annapolis Symphony and recitals on both coasts of the U.S. Prior engagements include a summer 2006 appearance on the Downtown River to River Festival Summer Stars series and his summer 2005 Chicago Symphony debut at the Ravinia Festival performing Philip Glass’s Concerto Fantasy for Two Timpanists and Orchestra with percussionist Jonathan Haas and conductor James Conlon. Svet was featured in SYMPHONY Magazine’s January 2006 Emerging Artists issue and was honored to participate as a member of the Zankel Band for opening concerts at Carnegie Hall in 2003.
