Rackers is Associate Professor of Piano at the University of South Carolina School of Music where he teaches an international class of pianists and serves as Program Director of the Southeastern Piano Festival, one of the premiere venues in the United States for the training of young pianists and presentation of distinguished artists in concert.

Ukrainian-American pianist Marina Lomazov has established herself as one of the most passionate and charismatic performers on the concert scene today.
