Joel Dustin Weszka began private study of the clarinet at age fourteen while attending high school at C. Milton Wright in Harford County, Maryland. His enthusiasm flourished, and he grew through the ranks of county honors ensembles and solo festivals. By the end of high school he had claimed the Maryland Distinguished Scholar Talent in the Arts Award, performed in a side-by-side concert with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, served as Second Clarinet in the Maryland All-State Orchestra, and performed as principal in Respighi’s Pines of Rome with the Greater Baltimore Youth Orchestra. In the summer of 2007, he continued as principal clarinet with the GBYO in their European Tour, performing Mahler’s Symphony No. 2, Dvorak’s Carnival Overture, and Bernstein’s West Side Story in venues throughout Austria and the Czech Republic.

Mr. Weszka has studied chamber music extensively, performing Milhaud’s La cheminée du roi, and both Mozart’s and Brahms’s clarinet quintets under the collaborative guidance of Cecylia Barczyk. In 2009 he transferred to The Peabody, and has continued nurturing his experience in chamber music, performing in the Bay View Festival Wind Quintet and as Guest Artist at the International Music Institute and Festival USA. Mr. Weszka won the 2012 Levine Chamber Music Competition with Trio INUENDI, with resultant performances in the Kennedy Center and the Bulgarian Embassy. Mr. Weszka holds the B.M. and M.M. degrees from the Peabody Institute, and is pursuing postgraduate work there in the studio of Anthony McGill.


At 21, pianist Michael Delfin is an avid solo and collaborative performer on both the East and West Coasts. With a repertoire that ranges from Bach to Beethoven and Liszt to Liebermann, Michael has soloed for the Kennedy Center Millenium Stage, the Chautauqua Music Festival, the Eastern Music Festival, the Aspen Music Festival Spotlight Recitals, the American Beethoven Society, the Santa Barbara Beethovenfest, the Central California Bach Festival, and the Peabody Conservatory of Music Thursday Noon Recital Series. He has performed at venues such as the Harris Concert Hall in Aspen, CO, Miriam A. Friedberg Concert Hall in Baltimore, MD, Dana Auditorium in Greensboro, NC, and at various concert halls across California. Michael made his debut as a soloist with the EMF Guilford Symphony Orchestra under Eric Garcia performing Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 2, which was received as a “beautiful performance of great warmth” (Classical Voice of North Carolina).

Recent awards include prizes in the Chautauqua Piano Competition, Eastern Music Festival Piano Competition, the EMF Concerto Competition, the Peabody Conservatory Yale Gordon Competition, the Baltimore Music Club Competition, and the Celia Méndez Young Pianist’s Beethoven Competition; and dual membership in the Music Teachers’ Association of California Young Artist Guild and Young Composers Guild. He is currently a member of Peabody Camerata and pianist of the award-winning trio INUENDI with clarinetist Joel Weszka and cellist Frances Borowsky which took first prize in the Levine Chamber Music Competition and soloed at the Kennedy Center Millenium Stage and the Bulgarian Embassy in Washington D.C. During the summer of 2010, Michael served on the faculty of Summer Music at Stanislaus. He has performed in master class and privately for many artist-teachers including Paul Badura-Skoda, Leon Fleisher, Alexander Gavrylyuk, Joseph Kalichstein, Yoheved Kaplinsky, Jon Nakamatsu, John O’Conor, John Perry, Pascal Rogé, and Ann Schein. Michael is a senior in the studios of Boris Slutsky and Judah Adashi.

Concurrently with his piano studies, he is pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree in History at the Johns Hopkins University where he is a Bloomberg Scholar. For more information, please visit
