About the Event
Marc Ramirez and Olivia Hajioff form the violin and violin/viola duo Marcolivia. The duo has performed chamber music at the Kennedy Center, the Ravinia Festival, Merkin Hall, Symphony Space in Manhattan, as well as Carnegie Hall. The artists were invited to perform at Chamber Music America’s Marathon Concert in New York alongside the Juilliard Quartet. In addition, Marcolivia was the only chamber music finalist in the 2000 Concert Artists Guild Competition.
The artists have performed and taught at festivals in the US, Japan, Italy and England and are on the roster of the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage Artists. In 2011, Marcolivia was invited to be founding members of the Phillips Camerata – a chamber ensemble in residence at the Phillips Collection and the National Gallery. They are regularly featured on NPR’s “Performance Today” and “Front Row Washington.” In addition, Marcolivia have performed double concertos with 30 orchestras, here and abroad.
