These talented siblings are no strangers to the Civic Orchestra of Tucson. They performed as the Powe String Trio at our 2015 Benefit Concert and, with a different pianist, Carissa and Levi performed a different movement of the same Piano Trio by Lalo at our 2016 Benefit Concert. Levi performed the Saint-Saëns Cello Concerto at our Reid Park Concert in 2015, and first appeared as a soloist with COT in 2010, when he was 10 years old, performing a work by Vivaldi.
