John Marcel has made numerous media appearances on various radio and TV programs, most notably performing on NPR’s program, “From the Top,” where he was also awarded the Jack Kent Cooke Young Artist Award. Future engagements for Mr. Williams include a performance of Elmer Bernstein’s Concerto for Guitar and Orchestra with the Wheeling Symphony, and as a featured artist for the upcoming season of the Philadelphia Classical Guitar Society.

John began to study the guitar at age 10 and his talents were quickly noticed by the late Aron Shearer, who encouraged him to continue his pursuit as a classical guitarist. John went on to study with Stephen Aron at the Oberlin Conservatory at age 13, under whose guidance he began to gain attention winning competitions across the United States. He also spent a summer studying at the Aspen Music Festival after an invitation from Sharon Isbin, professor of guitar at the Juilliard School.

Williams started his collegiate studies with Manuel Barrueco at the Peabody Institute of Music in 2011, and received both his undergraduate and masters degree in guitar performance. He is currently enrolled at the prestigious Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia studying under Grammy award winning artist Jason Vieaux and David Starobin.

She belongs to that class of musicians that tell something pure and special with their instrument in a seemingly effortless flow. Soundboard Magazine (USA) wrote: “Some of the most sheerly beautiful playing I have ever heard.”

Irina was scheduled to perform in Baltimore in February of 2017 but was denied a visa to come to the United States. Maryland senators and representatives stepped in and Irina now has a visa to come perform in Baltimore.
