Boston Symphony Orchestra violinist Victor Romanul has been performing professionally since he was seven. From 1993 to 1995, he served as the BSO’s assistant concertmaster and, from 1981 to 1986, as associate concertmaster of the Pittsburgh Symphony. An active recitalist, teacher, and soloist, Victor has performed throughout the world, and has given master classes at Northwestern, Columbia, Oberlin, SUNY Stony Brook, and other schools across the country. Career highlights have included performances of Beethoven’s Violin Concerto with the Boston Pops and the New Hampshire Symphony, a three-concert series of the ten Beethoven violin sonatas at the Goethe Institute in Boston, performances of Bach’s sonatas and partitas for solo violin in one recital, and a recital of the complete solo sonatas of Eugene Ysaÿe. Victor studied with Ivan Galamian, Joseph Silverstein, and Jascha Heifetz. As a soloist, he was included in the 1997 "Best of Boston" the Boston Globe.
Using familiar imagery and shifting its context, artist Joe Wheaton’s video projections ask the viewer to reevaluate what they think they know. Over the course of his career, Wheaton has created projections for the 50th anniversary of the Peace Corps, The Oxford Symposium on Food and Cookery, and many other projects. He has made a rap music video in 24 hours in Taunggyi, Burma. From classical art and antiquities, to Burning Man and the rural peoples of South East Asia, nothing is off limits. Locally, Joe Wheaton’s metal sculptures can be seen at the Lauren Clark Fine Art Gallery and by appointment at his house and garden.
