    already have imposing musical

    résumés

    .  Encouraged by their mother to study music at age four, the

    Naughtons

    made their debut in the fourth grade as soloists with their hometown symphony, the Wisconsin Symphony Orchestra.  Since then, they have graduated from the prestigious Juilliard School as well as the Curtis Institute of Music where they were both awarded enviable

    Festorazzi

    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

    Orfeo

    label and features music of
