Victoria College’s final concert of the 2015-16 Faculty & Guest Recital Series will feature Danish American violist Sarah Perkins, accompanied by pianist Dr. Krume Andreevski, at 4 p.m. Sunday, April 3. The free concert will be held in the Johnson Symposium on VC’s Main Campus.

Perkins is also an upper string adjunct instructor for the Victoria Crossroads Strings, a joint project of Victoria College and the Victoria Symphony. She also plays in the Victoria Symphony and maintains a private studio in Houston.

The violist was a studio assistant to Jesse Levine at the Yale University School of Music, where she received her master’s degree on full scholarship. She now performs throughout Europe, Asia and the United States. She made her orchestral debut at the age of fifteen when she was chosen to perform as a member of the London Symphony at the Florida International Festival.

Perkins has performed multiple times at Carnegie Hall and at such prestigious music festivals as the Tanglewood Music Center and the National Orchestral Institute. While on the December 2010 World Orchestra tour, she received a Musician of Peace Award from the Cultural Foundation of Peace at the International Human Rights Forum in Santiago de Compostela, Spain.

Andreevski is a Macedonian pianist based in Houston, where he regularly performs and teaches. He has performed three times as a soloist with the Macedonian Philharmonic and has won several prizes in international music competitions. His piano performance degrees include a Doctorate of Musical Arts from the University of Houston.
