Salon Series offers intimate concerts with a new generation of classical musicians— this time with pianists, Arianna Körting and Robin Giesbrecht. Arianna Körting was one of only eighteen recipients nationwide under the age of 18 to have been selected as a 2011 Davidson Fellow by the Davidson Institute for Talent Development. Recognized by the United States Senate, her achievements were entered into the Congressional Record on October 6, 2011. Premier awards include: First Prizes in the Fifth Julia Crane International Piano Competition, the 2007 Bradshaw & Buono International Piano Competition, the CIPC Young Artists Competition, the David D. Dubois Piano Competition and in the Duquesne Young Artists National Piano Competition.  Arianna's numerous performances include: The Cleveland Indians Home Opener at Progressive Field, The Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra, Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall, Steinway Hall in NYC, NPR's From the Top, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Gilmore International Keyboard Festival, Pianofest in the Hamptons, St. Cecilia's Hall in Manila, the Beijing Music Festival and Academy, and the Fontainebleau Schools in Fontainebleau, France.

Praised for his “stunning bravura and seemingly unlimited virtuosity” Epoch Times and “nimbleness at the keys” Cologne-City News, pianist Robin Giesbrecht has been celebrated internationally with a career reaching mature artistry. Since winning the International Grotrian-Steinweg Competition at age seven and the NDR Arts Prize subsequently, Robin has enjoyed performances in recitals and as a soloist with orchestras throughout Europe, North America, and Asia, including debuts with the NDR Radio Philharmonic and the Southwest German Philharmonic. Robin’s recital performances include critically-acclaimed debuts at the Hamburg Philharmonic Hall, Carnegie Hall’s Weil Recital Hall, and in 2015, a performance of his own piano concerto at Lincoln Center. His chamber music collaborations include performances with the famed Szymanowski Quartet. He has performed at music festivals such as the Music Academy of the West, Oxford Philharmonic Piano Festival, Piano Texas, Menuhin Festival in Gstaad, and Sommerakademie Mozarteum Salzburg.
