About this Event

The Hohlax Trio is comprised of trained professional musicians who are active in Greek musical education and performance in Greece and the United States.

JAIME SMITH began her formal Classical Violin Performance studies in her home town with William Barbini (Concert-master, Sacramento Symphony) at California State University, Sacramento. She then moved east and continued her studies with Malcolm Lowe (Concert-master, Boston Symphony) and Eric Rosenblith (String department Chair, N.E.C.) at the prestigious New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, where she graduated with a degree in Violin Performance.

In 1999, Jaime was the first musician to be granted a Fulbright Scholarship to Greece to study its' traditional music in Athens. She attended the Ethniko Odeio (National Conservatory) with Yiannis Zevgolis, and then continued under the direction of Kyriakos Gouventas at the Odeio Athinon (Athens Conservatory). Jaime was also a student of Christos Tsiamoulis, the country's expert on makam theory and traditional music. She has spent the last 16 years living in Athens and performing all over Greece and Cyprus with celebrated artists such as the famous and beloved Mario, the "Rembetissa".

ORESTIS KOLETSOS was born in Paris and grew up in Athens. He studied music from his early childhood and started playing the bouzouki at the age of 15. Orestis was a student of the late Yiannis Palaiologou, one of the most important bouzouki players in the Greek recording industry and performance venues and also the nephew of Markos Vamvakaris (founder of the genre "Rembetika").

Orestis also has a degree in Biology from the University of Athens. For the past 17 years, Orestis has been performing in concerts and playing in various music venues and nightclubs. He has performed concerts for important composers such as Nikos Mamagakis and Ilias Andriopoulos which have been aired on television and radio programs. Orestis has collaborated in venues and on television with singers Mario, the "Rembetissa", Martha Frintzila and Zaharias Karounis, amongst many others.
