IOC01_15ViolinistThirteen-year old violinist Katia Tesarczyk, a Midway-Como resident, recently returned from Santiago, Chile where she performed in a three-generation recital with her mom, Minnesota pianist Claudia Chen, and her grandmother, pianist Patricia Parraguez Chen of Chile. Their three-generation recital included works by Dvorak, Tchaikowsky, Bruch, Ries, Schubert, Guastavino, Chopin, and Beethoven.

Tesarczyk, an eighth grader at MTS Minnesota Connections Academy, has been studying the violin since she was four-and-a-half years old. She is a student of Professor Sally O’Reilly (University of Minnesota). Tesarczyk has been a scholarship winner of the Schubert Club and Mary West Competitions. This month, Tesarczyk will represent Minnesota in the Junior Strings Division of the MTNA West Central Division Competition, which includes performers from eight states.
