Our Story

In 2005, Russian pianist, Tatiana Shustova, and American violinist, Aaron Jacobs, were paired to play a recital during graduate studies at Bowling Green State University. Sparks flew! And a life-long journey was set into motion. Married in 2008, this husband-wife duo has been concertizing for audiences from Russia to Italy and throughout the United States. Tatiana and Aaron live in Champaign, Illinois with their two sons, Pasha and Misha.


Perhaps we'll be in your neck of the woods some day soon! In addition to formal recitals, we enjoy preparing programs for children and audiences of all types. Please reach out to us any time via the contact form on this site.
