Phillippine violinist Diomedes Saraza Jr. and pianist and Steinway Artist Victor Santiago Asuncion worked Friday with Kenosha Unified orchestra students in a master class.

Violinist Saraza Jr. is “a product of both the Julliard and Yale Schools of Music” and was also a teaching assistant to Itzhak Perlman.

A former member of the Sejong Soloists, he lives in Manila, Philippines, and serves as the concertmaster of the Manila Symphony Orchestra, in addition to his solo recitals and chamber music performances.

Pianist Santiago Asuncion, who founded the FilAm Music Foundation in 2017, has a career as a soloist, recitalist and chamber musician. He has played all over the world and is also a vocal and chamber music coach. In that capacity, he has worked at the Ryan Opera Center and the Lyric Opera of Chicago, as well as festivals and universities around the globe.

The FilAm Music Foundation — a group dedicated to promoting classical musicians of Filipino descent through scholarships and performances — also hosted a recital Friday evening in the Ralph J. Houghton Performance Center (Reuther Central High School auditorium), 913 57th St.
