Astraios is thrilled to welcome pianist Libby Vanatta for our February 26th concert! Libby is on faculty at Texas A&M-Commerce where she not only teaches lessons and pedagogy, but she accompanies dozens and dozens of students (and faculty!) for recitals, juries, and lessons.

Meet Daniel Kelly!

Daniel Kelly first perfomed for Astraios in 2014 and has joined us for several projects since then. He returns to perform on February 26th. Unlike many trumpet players, he admits he enjoys using his "inside voice" to play chamber music.
