Philadelphia’s Curtis Institute of Music, one of America’s leading conservatories, continues a tradition of student promotion through its annual tour. We are pleased to welcome multiaward winning classical guitarist Jordon Dodson, a graduate of Curtis Institute, the Manhattan School of Music, and the Cincinnati Conservatory. Mr. Dodson, who has been hailed by Performance Today as “one of the top…guitarists of his generation,” has commissioned and premiered dozens of pieces internationally, including works by Lewis Nielson, Elliot Cole, Robert Sirota, and Gabriella Smith. Mr. Dodson’s recent performance and teaching schedule has taken him across the U.S. and abroad to venues such as (Le) Poisson Rouge (New York City), Roulette (Brooklyn), the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts (Philadelphia), and the Museo Nacional de Colombia (Bogota),
Accompanying Mr. Dodson is violinist and recording artist, Wanchi. A Curtis and Julliard Graduate, Wanchi began violin at age six and made her orchestral debut with the Baltimore Symphony at fourteen. Her CDs of Eugene Ysaye Sonatas and complete Partitas and Sonatas of J .S. Bach for Solo Violin were released in the fall of 2013 and 2015, respectively, under the Centaur Records label. Her next recording, the music of Benjamin Brittan and William Walton for Violin and Piano, is to be recorded by Centaur Records in spring 2018. Recent performance venues include the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, and Lincoln Center.
