His upcoming 2017-18 season includes performances at the Detroit, Columbus, California, and Amarillo symphonies.   Kenney’s main focus is chamber music.

A native of Israel, Gutman came to the United States to complete her bachelor and master of music degrees at the Mannes College of Music.   Along with performing, Gutman has taught at the Yehudi Menuhin Music School in the United Kingdom. She currently teaches at Bard College Preparatory in New York.    They will perform works by Bach, Respighi, Salonen and Schubert.   Monday’s performance is open to the public and free of charge, but tickets are required due to limited seating.
