Guest artist Eugene Osadchy will team up with the St. Petersburg String Quartet for a concert. The St. Petersburg Quartet is one of the world's most esteemed chamber ensembles. Appointed the inaugural Quartet in Residence at Wichita State University, the quartet includes Alla Aranovskaya as first violin, Evgeny Zvonnikov as second violin, Boris Vayner on the viola and Leonid Shukaev playing cello.

Currently Professor of Cello at the University of North Texas, Osadchy is a principal cellist with the Plano Symphony and the Dallas Chamber Orchestra. He is also the Artistic Advisor of the Vetta Chamber Music Series in Vancouver, Canada and the Artistic Advisor of the Blue Candlelight Music Series in Dallas.

Born in Kiev to a family of professional musicians, Osadchy started his musical education at the age of five on the piano and a year later on the cello. After graduating from The Special Music School for Talented and Gifted Children where he was in the class of Professor Ilya Zaritsky, he continued his education at the Kiev State Conservatory of Music (now the Tchaikovsky National Academy of Music), where he was in the class of Professor Maria Tchaikovskaya and graduated with honors. Osadchy became a Laureate of the Republic of Ukraine Cello Competition. He has performed at the Weill Recital Hall in Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall at the Lincoln Center and the Glenn Gould Studio in Toronto.
