Violinist Ignace “Iggy” Jang is known for his sparkling technical fireworks, his sumptuous and enticing tone, and for his ability to forge personal connections with his audiences.
Jang is the Concertmaster of the Hawaii Symphony Orchestra, Britt Festivals Orchestra, faculty member of the Music Department at the University of Hawaii Manoa, and Director of the String Program of the Hawaii Performing Arts Festival. He has performed throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia.
Pianist Cary Lewis, Director of Chamber Music at the Astoria Music Festival, is in frequent demand as a collaborative pianist for soloists and chamber music groups. He joined William Preucil (concertmaster of the Cleveland Orchestra) and his wife, cellist Dorothy Lewis, to form the Lanier Trio, whose recording of the complete Dvorak Trios was honored by TIME Magazine as one of the Ten Best Recordings in 1993.
With degrees from the University of North Texas as well as a doctorate and Performer’s Certificate from the Eastman School of Music, he was a Fulbright scholar for two years in Vienna. His teachers included Eugene List, Brooks Smith, and Dieter Weber. He has performed at Carnegie Hall, Bargemusic, the Library of Congress, the White House, the Kennedy Center, Wigmore Hall in London, the National Philharmonic in Warsaw, and in other music capitals of the United States and Europe. Dr. Lewis is retired from the faculty of Georgia State University in Atlanta and is now based in Portland, Oregon.
