Sixteen-year-old Thomas Nickell will be making his Chicago debut with the Oistrakh Symphony of Chicago in a program sponsored by The Alexander & Buono Foundation.

With a half dozen Carnegie Hall performances, two international commissions, and a recent three-continent concert tour to his credit, Nickell at sixteen already boasts a career that seems destined for the highest levels of achievement. Praised by critics for his "exceptional technique" and "keen understanding of the instrument's possibilities," he is a student of Thomas Osugua, and coaches with Steinway Artist Cosmo Buono.
