Piano International, this
concert is free and open to
the public.
Kosminov made his
California debut in January
2015 performing Chopin’s
Piano Concerto No.1 with
Maestro Jon Robertson and
the Redlands Symphony. The
performance was described
by Redlands Daily Facts as
a “concert … with music
simply fl owing through his
fi ngers and fl oating like liq-
uid gold in intricate patterns
up and down the keyboard.”
As the winner of the 2013
Lynn Concerto Competition,
Kosminov made his U.S.
debut in October of that year
under the baton of Maestro
Guillermo Figueroa, per-
forming Dmitri Shostakov-
ich’s Piano Concerto No. 1.
Previously, he was a
prizewinner of several

In 2015, he was one of the

On their latest single,
2016’s “Call Me Out,”
Shook Twins once again
take another leap from
the acoustic music scene
with a vibe-y, pop-infused
soundscape with a poignant
message ready to be em-
braced by the masses. Lush
harmonies, delayed banjo
pickin’, deep drums and
multi-layered lead vocals
draw the listener into this
intimate breakout summer
Bart Budwig’s fi fth
full-length record, “Paint
By Numbers Jesus,” is a
meditation on Jesus as a
cultural fi gure, and a walk
through the mind of some-
one who is processing their
place on the faith spectrum.
It was inspired, partly, by
Willie Nelson’s ‘Redhead-
ed Stranger,’ a group of
cover songs strung together
tightly by Nelson originals,
