We are “The Rice Brothers,” Johnny and Chris. We are young Polish-American musicians. Each of us plays the piano, and each of us plays the cello. We have performed extensively from coast to coast in the United States, in New York City, including our 2014 Carnegie Hall debut, and in such places as Chicago, Cleveland, Phoenix, and Los Angeles. In Europe, we have performed in Poland, where we were the featured artists at the June 2014 World Music Day celebration in Warsaw; and in Austria, Germany, and Hungary. We were awarded our Carnegie Hall debut following each of us having been named a gold medalist at an international Chopin piano competition. In our performances we feature a blend of classical music, Gospel, jazz, ragtime and Boogie Woogie. We usually perform together as a duo, but also love being soloists with orchestras. In addition, we understand, and are deeply committed to, the extent to which music can bring profound benefits to individuals, and to the broader community, with regard to such issues as health, education, and even the effective resolution of conflict. Toward these ends, we have formed a corporation, The Beautiful Music Possibility, LLC.
