Live Concert featuring Russian Virtuosos, Mariya Polishchuk on Violin with Sofya Maryanova on Piano

Violinist and co-founder of chamber ensamble Aetas, Mariya Polishchuk strives to connect with diverse audiences by establishing community and outreach partnerships. Taking every opportunity to cultivate her love of music in others, she has become a sought-after pedagogue, performer and collaborator, maintaining a steady schedule of engagements throughout the year. Polishchuk is a passionate chamber musician and champion of new music, constantly working to bring an understanding of contemporary music to the modern audience while breathing a unique personality and new life into more commonly performed works. Born in Moscow, Russia, Polishchuk immigrated to the US with her family at a young age and almost immediately began her musical studies with her parents. She studied violin primarily with Isaac Malkin, also receiving significant guidance from Elisabeth Zeuthen Schneider. She is a winner of the prestigious Helen Airoff Dowling and Twiford Scholarships, as well as the Josephine C. Whitford Award at the Manhattan School of Music. Most recently, she has appeared as part of Thy Music Festival in Denmark, as part of the Lumiere Piano Trio at Weil Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, and together with her string sextet as winners of the Fuchs Chamber Music Competition.

Sofya Maryanova is a graduate of the Ippolitov-Ivanov Music College, and Russia's Saratov State Conservatory. She specializes in piano performance, collaborative piano, and pedagogy. In the US, Maryanova enjoys an all-encompassing career. Besides performing as a soloist, she collaborates with frequently with violinist Leonid Polishchuk, her husband. She is a professor of piano at SUNY New Paltz and also teaches one-on-one lessons in her studio. She will accompany her daughter, Mariya Polishchuk for this festive concert.
