Two-time Grammy Award-winning violinist Hilary Hahn's career now boasts 15 albums, three DVDs, an Oscar-nominated movie soundtrack, a performance spot on the Tonight show, cover features in various magazines like Vogue, Elle, Town & Country, and Marie Claire.

Two-time Grammy Award-winning violinist Hilary Hahn has delighted audiences around the world in the 20 years of her career. Starting lessons in the Suzuki program at just three-years-old, Hahn went on to enroll in the Curtis Institute of Music at age 10 and made her orchestra debut at age 12. She would soon complete university requirements at age 16 but would delay graduation to continue studies, eventually becoming a full-time touring musician and receiving a Bachelor's Degree at age 19. Her career now boasts 15 albums, three DVDs, an Oscar-nominated movie soundtrack, a performance spot on The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien, cover features in various magazines like Vogue, Elle, Town & Country, and Marie Claire, and being named "America's Best Young Classical Musician" by Time magazine in 2001.

Pianist Cory Smythe works actively in new, classical, and improvised music. He has performed widely and played alongside violinist Hilary Hahn in concerts throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia. A Washington Post review of the duo’s performance at the Kennedy Center praised Smythe for “…the ferocity and finesse of his technique.” Their album, In 27 Pieces: the Hilary Hahn Encores, documenting Hahn’s diverse collection of newly commissioned pieces for violin and piano, received a 2014 Grammy award in the category of best classical chamber music.
