A Curve of Change

When Maestro Edvard Tchivzhel leads the Greenville Symphony Orchestra, his gestures indicate not merely the tempo, but also his unbounded passion for music. It has been my honor to have been commissioned to paint the inspiring and internationally reknowned conductor's portrait.

"On every dispensation, there are individuals that stand out as leaders of their time. The most famous stand out at a "curve of change". This has happened in our upstate of South Carolina. The opportunity came to me in collaboration with the Greenville Symphony to honor the 25 year celebration of the Maestro's defection from Russia. 
Maestro Edvard Tchivzhel is such a person, who sacrificed his country, family and honor from Russia. Only to embrace our lives and bring the love of music to soothe our souls.
I am honored. "
