He has performed with many of the world’s greatest vocalists including Marilyn Horne, Deborah Voigt, Anna Netrebko, Susan Graham and Dame Kiri Te Kanawa. In addition to his distinguished concert career, he also serves as Artistic Director of the Vocal Arts Department at The Juilliard School. Violinist Nurit Pacht is a top prize-winner in international competitions including the Irving Klein International Music Competition and the Tibor Varga International Violin Competition. A former student of Almita Vamos, Pacht is now a Chautauqua School of Music faculty member herself.
