Robert Mann founded the Juilliard String Quartet in 1946. This past January, at 91, he inaugurated the Robert Mann String Quartet Institute. Six of North America’s most promising young string quartets, personally chosen by Mann, took part in a series of coachings and master classes.

Naomi O'Connell hails from County Clare, Ireland, a heritage you can hear during her recent visit to the Young Artists Showcase studio where she performed some Irish songs to help us welcome St. Patrick. Currently making her West End debut in the Tony Award-winning play Master Class, O’Connell won first prize in the 2011 Concert Artists Guild competition. She brought us a set of songs from traditional and contemporary roots, accompanied by pianist Brent Funderburk.
