Rinat Shaham, one of New York City's darlings, (Google NY Times) has taken the Arts world by storm, with appearances in Movies singing Jazz, and critical acclaim for her sexy portrayals of Carmen in all corners of the world.

One writer mentions Shaham's personal blog (read his article), in which she gives a continuing account of the fascinating life of an opera singer. It's called Singin'Rin.

Jenny Koh is a funky Violinist who lives in New York, described in the press as: "wild, passionate, unique, personal, intimate," a favorite performer of Philadelphians, as they watched her come up through the ranks from her beginnings at the Curtis Institute of Music, as they did with Shaham.

Shaham and Koh are old friends, and it promises to be a warm and fuzzy night at Verizon Hall.
