Anna performed in the Chamber Gallery twice last year, as a duo with her father, violinist Valeriy Maksymova, and also as a guest with the Tres Cordes Piano Quartet.
Tomas is also a member of the Tres Cordes Piano Quartet and the Tres Cordes String Trio, so both are familiar with the gallery and are audience favourites.
The concert begins at 2pm. It is the Waimakariri Community Arts Council's final free Sunday concert for the season this year.
Anna began her formal musical education as a 6-year-old in the Ukraine. In New Zealand she learned from Peter Nagy, Judith Clark and Gao Ping, and completed a Bachelor of Music with first-class honours studying with Professor Michael Endres at the University of Canterbury. She recently returned from Germany, where she completed a Master of Music in Piano Performance at the Frankfurt University of Music and Performing Arts.
She is now based in Christchurch where she works as a performing pianist and a teacher
Tomas, born in the Czech Republic, also has a rich musical background. He has a masters degree in fine arts from the Academy of Performing Arts, in Prague. He has performed widely in Europe.
