Featuring: Andrew Sords with Cheryl Duvall
American violinist Andrew Sords has a celebrated career as a soloist on four continents and in performances with his trio. Having appeared with nearly 300 orchestras, Sords has been cited for combining visceral virtuosity with a ravishing tone, while international critics endorse Sords as “a fully formed artist” (Kalisz-Poland News), “utterly radiant” (Canada’s Arts Forum), and “exceptionally heartfelt and soulful” (St. Maarten’s Daily Herald).
Andrew will be joined by Toronto-based pianist Cheryl Duvall who has established herself as one of Canada’s foremost contemporary music interpreters, immersing herself in a wide variety of compositional aesthetics and collaborative endeavours. Besides performing, she maintains a full private piano studio, is a member of the College of Examiners with The Royal Conservatory of Music, adjudicates piano competitions across Canada and appears as guest speaker in university classroom and festival panels.
