Prizes for Best Pianist of the Year.

These twin Steinway Artists have performed throughout the world sharing stages with the Philadelphia Orchestra, Buffalo Philharmonic, Nashville Symphony and Hong Kong Philharmonic to name but a few.  Past seasons have also brought Christina and Michelle to chamber music halls in Boston, Washington, D.C., San Francisco and New York City where they currently reside.  The sisters’ first album was released in 2012 on the
