    cialis arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;”>A newly formed string quartet featuring a Westlake Village couple will present a free concert on Aug. 27 in the William Rolland Gallery of Fine Art at California Lutheran University.

    The Los Angeles String Kollektiv Concert will begin at 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 27, on the Thousand Oaks campus.

    Violinist Gulia Gurevich has performed as a soloist, chamber musician and orchestra member in Carnegie Hall and throughout the United States and abroad. She appeared in more than 100 concerts with Prima Trio, which won the Grand Prix and the Gold Medal at the Fischoff Chamber Music Competition in 2007. Also a dedicated teacher, she was on the faculty of the prestigious Lucy Moses School in Lincoln Center and the Westerhoff School of Music and Art in New Jersey.

    Violist Alexander Gurevich has served as the general manager of the New West Symphony since 2014. A former member of the Florida Philharmonic, he earned a bachelor’s degree from the Manhattan School of Music and a master’s degree in viola performance from the University of California, Santa Barbara. He completed advanced studies in viola performance at the University of Southern California. The Gureviches live in Westlake Village.

    Farkhad and Hayley Abdikadirov, a Massachusetts couple who recently graduated from Longy School of Music of Bard College, play the violin and viola. Farkhad Abdikadirov, originally from Uzbekistan, and Hayley Abdikadirov, a Mississippi native, promote music in the lives of people affected by mental diseases and were founding members of the Me2 Orchestra, a Boston-based string ensemble that is the only group in the world made up of musicians with mental health issues and their supporters.

    The program will feature Bohuslav Martinu’s “Serenata II,” Antonin Dvorak’s “Miniatures” and other pieces.

    This concert is free with no advance tickets needed.

    The gallery is inside William Rolland Stadium, which is located north of Olsen Road near Mountclef Boulevard on the Thousand Oaks campus.
