Gerling, a professor of music at Brazil’s Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, is an award-winning violinist, conductor and educator with an extensive background in chamber music and many years of performing with chamber music groups in the United States and Brazil.

Gerling also led the “Orquestra de Câmara Theatro São Pedro” string orchestra for seven very successful concert seasons.

Capparelli has appeared as a soloist, recitalist, chamber musician, guest teacher and lecturer in the United States, Canada, England, France and Portugal.
