Aaron Larget-Caplan is a riveting artist(Washington Post) with astounding technical proficiency and artistic delicacy (Boston Musical Intelligencer). Aaron received the Médaille DEtain (Pewter Medal) from the Socièté Académique Arts-Sciences-Lettres de Paris, France. His recordings are available on Albany, Navona and Stone Records, and he is on faculty at University of Massachusetts Boston and formerly Boston Conservatory.
From his home in Portland, Jerry Bobbe maintains dual careers as both a professional cellist and internationally respected numismatist. He served as Principal Cellist in both the Chicago Chamber Orchestra and the Chicago Civic Orchestra, Assistant Principal in the Milwaukee (Wisconsin) Symphony, and Principal Cellist of the Florida Orchestra. For more than a decade, he served as Principal Cellist of the Vancouver (Washington) Symphony. Jerry was named Portland's Best Cellist in Willamette Week's 1994 "Best of Portland" issue, where he was pictured on the front cover as his Charlie Chaplin cello-playing alter ego. Jerry performs on a cello of the Venetian master Eugenio Degani, dated 1891.
La Conja is one of Flamenco Worlds most versatile artists. She has developed a substantial international reputation as a dancer, singer, and choreographer. She has toured nationally and internationally. The New York Daily News described her as a mesmerizing singer and demon dancer, and indeed, her dancing illustrates a show-of-force characteristic of the Art of Flamenco.
