via HVMag – Few musicians manage to achieve in a lifetime what siblings Nicholas and Karina Canellakis have accomplished before their 40th birthdays. Nick, 32, a cellist, recently had a debut performance at Carnegie Hall with the American Symphony Orchestra; he is also an artist with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. Karina, a 35-year-old violinist-turned-conductor, is a rising star as well. She just came off a stint conducting the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, and was the 2016 winner of the Sir Georg Solti Conducting Award. And now Hudson Valley residents have the opportunity to see them both: on February 18, the talented siblings are performing with the Albany Symphony.
