The Georgetown University Music Program’s Friday Music Series features free concerts on Friday afternoons beginning at 12:30 p.m. in McNeir Hall, New North Building, located on Georgetown University's main campus in Washington, DC.

Kathryn Brake (piano) - Characterized as a “compelling and imaginative performer” by The Washington Post, pianist Kathryn Brake has performed solo recitals in the United States, Canada, Italy, France, Switzerland and Spain. A winner of the National Young Chopin Competition, the Beethoven Competition, the Kosciusko Foundation Awards and the Elizabeth Davis Award, she has performed as soloist with several orchestras, including the Baltimore Symphony and the National Symphony. A much sought-after chamber music player and recitalist who is equally at ease with a wide range of musical styles, Ms. Brake has performed live on WETA and WGMS radio stations and has recorded broadcasts for France Musique and Radio Television Espanola. She can be heard on the Albany Records label in several critically acclaimed recordings of duos and chamber music.

Claudia Chudacoff (violin) recently completed her third one-year full-time contract as a member of the violin section of the National Symphony Orchestra. She is the concertmaster of both the National Gallery Orchestra and the Alexandria Symphony Orchestra, and in 2015 retired from her position as concertmaster of the U.S. Marine Band's White House Chamber Orchestra, in which she served during four Presidential administrations. Prior to moving to Washington DC, she was the Assistant Concertmaster of the Louisville Orchestra. She has appeared as soloist several times with all four of these groups, as well as with the Concert Artists of Baltimore, the Toledo Symphony, the Louisville Ballet, the Ann Arbor Symphony and others.
