Alena Gorina and Anya Grokhovski are concert pianists with extensive experience as both soloists and chamber musicians who came together to share their love of the piano repertory. Their programing is greatly influenced by their cultural and educational roots. Alena was born, raised and educated in Belorussia and Anya in Moscow, Russia. Needless to say, Russian music holds a special place in their hearts. Both Alena and Anya hold doctoral degrees in piano performance; Alena from UT Austin and Anya from The Russian Academy of Music in Moscow. Currently, Alena is a lecturer at Texas State University in San Marcos and Anya is the Artistic Director of Musical Bridges Around the World, a non-profit cultural and educational organization based in San Antonio, Texas.
