Born in Clarksville, Tennessee, Clarence Cameron White (1880–1960) was not only an influential composer, but also a renowned concert violinist. Having studied with the likes of Will Marion Cook, Joseph Douglass, Frederick Doolittle, and many others, White was an expert violinist who contributed extensively to the instrument’s repertoire and pedagogical practices. White was particularly respected for his contribution to the development of the black musical community within America and served in administrative positions throughout his career as the head of the string department at the Washington Conservatory of Music, the president of the National Association of Negro Musicians, and the head of the music department at Hampton University.
Russian-British violinist Dunja Lavrova began her musical studies in St. Petersburg, won a full scholarship at The Yehudi Menuhin School, and completed both her Bachelor and Masters degrees at the Royal College of Music. Renowned for her solo and chamber recitals along with performances with orchestras from around the world, Lavrova is fanatical about the “Golden Age of Violin” era and maintains a self-proclaimed “mission” to bring the scores and the playing style of that period to today’s audiences. In addition to performing more traditional repertoire, Dunja frequently performs with world-class Jazz and Pop artists, Latin and Rock bands, in shows, and alongside Big Bands.
