Bálint Karosi is an award-winning concert organist, composer and advocate of the art of keyboard improvisation in historic styles. He has appeared as a soloist at the Gewandhaus in Leipzig, the Béla Bartók National concert Hall in Budapest, the Rudolforium in Prague, the Liszt Academy in Budapest, the Victoria Hall in Geneva and the Essen Philarmonie, and has been a soloist at the Baldwin Wallace Bach Festival, the International Bach Festival in Leipzig, the Boston Early Music Festival and the Magadino Organ Festival in Switzerland.

A devoted teacher of organ, improvisation and music theory, Mr. Karosi has taught at Boston University and UMass Boston, the Oberlin Conservatory and the Yale Department of Music. He has been an advocate of the art of keyboard improvisation since he started playing the organ at age seventeen. His doctoral thesis Rhetoric and Schemata: Improvising the Chorale Prelude in the 18th-century Lutheran Tradition investigates the pedagogical, cultural and methodological role of the Lutheran Chorales in teaching improvisation in the eighteenth century.

Héloïse Degrugillier has worked extensively as both a recorder performer and teacher throughout Europe and the United States. Recent performances included a recital at the National Music Museum in South Dakota, with the Dunya ensemble in Jordan Hall, and with the Boston Early Music Festival Opera. Héloïse enjoys an active teaching career, working with the Boston Recorder Society, Recorder Guild of New York, Pinewoods and others. She has recently completed her studies in the Alexander technique and has a Masters in Music from the Utrecht Conservatory in the Netherlands. She has studied with Heiko ter Scheggett, Saskia Coolen, and Pedro Memelsdorff.
