Concert Violinist Oksana is one of Arkansas’ greatest treasures. Trained as a world class violinist in Russia’s greatest music schools, she performs with the Texarkana and Ft. Smith Symphonies. She also performs regularly on the World Music Night program at the Clinton Library.
Now in Benton, Oksana is teaching a new generation of violinists at her music school, Ovation Music Academy. Never to rest on her laurels, Oksana has been busy studying jazz. Her upcoming CD release concert, to be held at the Coronado Center, features American jazz music of the 30s, 40s, and 50s. Those familiar with her style of playing will continue to appreciate her impeccable style of violin performance. Now she will be adding singing to her list of talents. She will be assisted by Brian Hamby on Hammond organ and vocals. Brian is a student of the great jazz organist Tony Monaco. Slavek Bolubah will be on drums and is one of Central Arkansas’ busiest drummers. He has played with many of the top jazz musicians in the area, including guitarist Ted Ludwig. Slavek is also a member of the popular group, ‘Dizzy Seven’. Slavek also assists in recording the Arkansas Symphony anytime they perform.
Come and enjoy the unique sounds of Oksana!
