Violinist Nicole Paglialonga directs the String Project at Virginia Tech. As a professional violinist, she has appeared in recital as a soloist, with chamber groups, or in orchestras on four different continents; locally she is a member of the Roanoke Symphony Orchestra and the Ash Lawn Opera. An enthusiastic performer of contemporary music, Paglialonga has had several works by living composers written specifically for her and received invitations to play at new music festivals and venues around the country. She is also a passionate teacher and is committed to furthering quality string music education and bringing new opportunities to children in the New River Valley.

Praised by critics as “extraordinary” (The DCist) and "astounding" (CVNC), faculty member Richard Masters is a soloist, opera coach, chamber musician, and orchestral pianist. Significant collaborations include concerts with baritone Donnie Ray Albert, mezzo-soprano Kathryn Findlen, mezzo-soprano Barbara Conrad, and many others. He has appeared with former Boston Symphony principal trombonist Norman Bolter, former Juilliard String Quartet violinist Earl Carlyss, saxophonist Harvey Pittel, and under the baton of Lorin Maazel. Dr. Masters has performed solo, chamber, and vocal recitals throughout the U.S. and in Europe.
