And we are looking forward to seeing everyone and enjoying chef Peter's amazing food, as always! 

08.29.2021 Miolina is thrilled to announce that we both became members of the City Artists Corp, a corp of NYC-based artists who are receiving funding from the New York Foundation for the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the Mayor's Office of Media & Entertainment, and Queens Theatre.

Still living in covid times... anyway, we just performed the Bach Double Violin Concerto, with Claudia Dumschat on organ for 8 audience members and one well-behaved canine music lover at The Church of the Transfiguration in Manhattan.

07.04.18 We received this lovely review of our album from Jillian DeGroot at I CARE IF YOU LISTEN. Thank you!

"Sonic embodiment of personhood; aggressive and virtuosic prowess; thoughtfully crafted and beautifully executed; brilliance of sound, technical mastery, and stunning expressivity."
