Rachel Rudich has achieved distinction as an advocate of contemporary music. Since 1982 she has performed with the New Music Consort and the Group for Contemporary Music, and has premiered works by Pierre Boulez, Elliott Carter, George Crumb, Mario Davidovsky, Harvey Sollberger and others. In 1983, Ms. Rudich won the Kraeuter Musical Foundation award for outstanding achievement in chamber music. As winner of the Artists International Young Musicians Competition, she gave her New York Debut in 1984 at Carnegie Recital Hall. Since 1984 she has been on the roster of Affiliate Artists, performing as soloist throughout the United States. In 1986, Ms. Rudich won first prize in the National Association of Composers—USA (NACUSA) fifth annual Young Performers Competition, given for excellence in performing contemporary American music.

Kory Grossman began to play percussion instruments at the age of seven, although he did not complete his formal musical studies until 1984, when he was awarded a master of music degree from the Manhattan School of Music and received the Melvin M. Wodka Award for excellence in percussion. As a founding member of the Manhattan Marimba Quartet, Grossman has been devoted to the creation of a repertoire for percussion where none previously existed. Mr. Grossman has performed throughout the United States and Europe, and has been critically acclaimed for his work with many ensembles playing a wide range of music, from the standard repertoire to compositions on the cutting edge of today’s new music.
