“Mozart's Piano Trio, K. 542 was gracefully turned, with Serge Romanchak's piano playing understated but unfailingly sprightly.”
-Joe Banno, The Washington Post
“The recital's highlight was arguably Romanchak's solo interpretations of Liszt's Etude in D flat and Chopin's Nocturne in C sharp minor,
Op.27 no.1. Romanchak successfully tackled the score's inherent difficulties, which would make lesser pianists blink.”
-J. Kenneth Townsend, The Alexandria Gazette
“Director and Teacher Extraordinaire”
