Larissa grew up performing with her family, The Fedoryka Family Ensemble, bringing her to venues such as the Kennedy Center and the Wolf Trap Family Festival. She received her Doctorate of Musical Arts in 2017 from the University of California Santa Barbara. While in California, she freelanced as a cellist, playing with local orchestras, recording as a session cellist and touring with Latin pop icon Marco Antonio Solis and Gloria Trevi. She most recently toured with Celtic-Americana band Scythian, holding down the back-line as cellist and electric bass guitarist. Currently residing in Front Royal, Virginia, she teaches Music Theory and the History of Music at Christendom College. 
 
Rollin has been an active recitalist for the last forty years, including performing numerous concerto solos with local orchestras. His background is extensive in chamber music and accompanying; he performed regularly with his own piano-violin-cello trio in the 1990ís. He teaches piano, and is a composer of numerous works, and written pieces performed for the theater. He created his own series of dramatic narratives within a music recital, presented as Stories in Concert, and developed original seminars called the Art of Listening series, exploring the language of expression in live music, debuting it at the Chautauqua Summer Institute in the summer of 2000. He is currently developing a growing series of salon-styled concerts and seminars with creative programming and an emphasis on the deepening of audience involvement and musical understanding in performance.
