Dr. Oksana Lutsyshyn (she/her/hers)



Oksana Lutsyshyn was   born in the city of Lviv, Ukraine. She began studying music at the age   of eight and at twelve she entered the Special Music School in   Lviv. Upon graduating from this school, she moved to Moscow, Russia,   where she entered the Moscow State Conservatory, completing both her graduate   and post-graduate degrees.  After moving to the United States, she was   Visiting Scholar at the Indiana University School of Music in   Bloomington. She is presently on the music faculty at Old Dominion   University, where she teaches Piano and Music Theory. She also serves as   Artistic Co-Director of the Norfolk Chamber Consort.   Lutsyshyn has appeared in concerts as a   soloist and chamber musician throughout the former Soviet Union, Europe, the   United States, and South America. She gave her New York debut in the Weill   Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall and a Chicago debut in the Preston Bradley Hall   at Chicago Cultural Center.  Locally, she has performed with the   Virginia International Arts Festival, Virginia Symphony Orchestra, Ludwig F.   Diehn Concert Series, as well as numerous other concert presenters. Lutsyshyn   won Second Prize at the Vienna Modern Masters Third International Performers’   Recording Awards Competition.  She was also a prizewinner at the William   Kapell International Piano Competition in College Park, Maryland.    As a chamber musician, Lutsyshyn has performed   in ensembles with prominent musicians such as violinists Joshua Bell and   Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg, tubist Harvey Phillips, saxophonist Eugene   Rousseau, and tenor James King, among many others. Together with her husband,   Andrey Kasparov, she is a founding member of the Invencia Piano Duo,   performing nationally and internationally.     Lutsyshyn is a prolific recording artist,   having worked with the BBC, Vienna Modern Masters, and Contemporary Record   Society. But it was her recordings of Hommage à Gabriel Fauré (Hommages   musicaux) and piano works by Adolphus Hailstork (Ignis fatuus) on Albany   Records that brought her high critical acclaim.  The Fanfare Magazine   called her touch in Ignis fatuus “perfect,” while the American Record Guide’s   review of Hommages musicaux proclaimed: “Hats off to the Kasparov-Lutsyshyn   piano duo team for bringing these fascinating pieces to us in their original   forms.”  She and Kasparov have recently recorded the entire original   works by Florent Schmitt for piano duet and duo.   In addition to her performing and recording   schedules, Ms. Lutsyshyn has taught master classes at many American   universities, including Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, Humboldt State   University in Arcata, California, and University of Central Arkansas in   Conway, Arkansas. Currently, she teaches piano and theory at Old   Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia. She also serves as Director of   Music at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Virginia Beach.
