Happy November! I hope you found some time for rest and relaxation over the summer. I spent my summer performing with flutist Robert Cart, learning new solo piano music, and visiting with family and friends.
In April, I organized a benefit concert event to help Ukrainian war victims on behalf of the Rome School of Music, Drama, & Art at Catholic University in Washington, DC. Faculty and students from Music, Drama, and Art all participated to create a meaningful program. Here's an article about the concert from the Catholic Standard.
Robert Cart and I performed a flute and piano concert in Paris, France in May, and I was delighted to be back in one of my favorite cities. We presented a very fun program of new music featuring works by Luis Barroso, Lili Boulanger, Sergi Casanelles, Valerie Coleman, and David Ludwig.

This fall, I updated my private piano studio webpage and some wonderful new students have joined the studio. I still have some openings left in my schedule, so if you or someone you know is interested in piano lessons, in-person or online, let me know! We recently had our first in-person group class, and have several more scheduled throughout the school year. You can follow the studio on Instagram and Facebook!
I am so excited that I have been accepted to the 2023-2024 Performing Artists Touring Roster of the Virginia Commission for the Arts! This program helps bring high-quality programming to the entire state of Virginia through grants to presenters who book roster artists.
Starting in February 2023, I will be presenting an exciting solo program featuring music by living women composers Jennifer Margaret Barker, Faina Lushtak, and Caroline Shaw. I will be performing at the Church of the Epiphany and Ward Recital Hall in Washington, DC, the Van Vleck House & Gardens in Montclair, NJ, the Grace Concert Series in Richmond, VA, the Meet the Artists Series in Reston, VA, and the Davies Concert Series in Temple Hills, MD. I would love to see you at one of these events!
