American tenor Christopher Reames is establishing an exciting and engaging career as a concert artist, recitalist, and dynamic performer on the operatic stage. Chris is a winner of The Gérard Souzay Prize for French Singing appropriated by Dalton Baldwin and administered by The Art Song Preservation Society of New York, who co-sponsored his New York City recital debut of beloved French mélodies in Marc A. Scorca Hall at The National Opera Center. Chris’ compelling performances captivate audiences with beauty and sensitivity, and he has been praised for his “lustrous” singing and “great musicality” by The Examiner of Greater Kansas City.

Kanako Reames, a highly sought-after collaborative pianist, currently serves as an adjunct faculty at Tennessee Technological University. Also as an instructor specializing in educating the young pianist, many of her students have won or placed in regional piano competitions. With more than a decade of teaching experience, she currently maintains a thriving private piano studio. A former collaborative and solo piano faculty member at the Mahanaim School and Gracias Academy in Huntington, NY, Kanako also enjoyed accompanying fellow musicians throughout Long Island and the Tri-State area. She formerly served as a collaborative artist at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and the Nevada School of the Arts, where she worked closely with both singers and instrumentalists. Kanako is a recipient of the Felix Viscuglia Award for Best Instrumental Performer at UNLV, where she also won the University of Nevada, Reno and the UNLV Concerto Competitions. Showing much promise as a young pianist, Kanako appeared as a soloist with the NHK Dan Yu Orchestra in Tokyo. Her formal musical study took place at the Toho Gakuen School of Music, the International Keyboard Institute, and the Toho Gakuen College of Music in Tokyo, from which she holds a Bachelor of Music degree. She also holds a Master of Music degree in piano performance from UNLV.
