Kamila Glass completed her studies with Prof. Lawrynowicz at the Chopin Academy in Warsaw, as well as Prof. Gronich and Prof. Haiberg at the University of Arts in Berlin, with distinction.
Very early on, Kamila Glass became interested in chamber music and while still in Poland, won several awards in chamber music and violin competitions. She received her "fine-tuning" with the Amadeus Quartet in London. Since then, this passionate chamber musician has played with many different musicians in a variety of ensembles. From 1998 to 2000 Kamila Glass was a Fellow with the DSO Academy. Today, she herself manages the DSO Academy and organizes and teaches chamber music there. Kamila Glass plays a violin by Claude Augustin Miremont (Paris, 1872).
 
Peter Longworth
 
„Peter Longworth is a concert pianist of such power and grace that even the crystal baubles on the chandeliers at Orchestra Hall tingle, dance and resonate when he plays."
(Chicago Tribune)
Born in 1964 in London, England, Mr. Longworth began his piano studies in Brussels. He studied at Northwestern University with Arthur Tollefson and at the University of Michigan with Eckhart Sellheim and after a year at the Banff Centre for the Fine Arts, he completed his studies at the Royal Conservatory with Marek Jablonski, Leon Fleisher, and Marc Durand. Mr. Longworth was a laureate of the International Busoni Piano Competition in Italy in 1991.

He has been a soloist with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Fairbanks Symphony, the Vancouver Symphony, Kitchener- Waterloo Symphony, and other orchestras in North America.
