What a year it's been. I hope that you survived and maybe even thrived in some ways during this time.
I haven't shared my piano news in over a year, so I wanted to give a quick summary of many great things that have happened.
So far in 2021...
I have 2 upcoming online performances scheduled for June 24 and 25 - one with the Victoria International Arts Festival in Malta, and the other a solo piano concert for District New Music Coalition featuring the premiere of a brand new work! More info
I am thrilled to announce that I’ll be in residence this summer at the Atlantic Music Festival as a Contemporary Ensemble fellow! I can't wait to work with so many incredible musicians and artist faculty. If you find yourself up in Waterville, Maine, come by, say hi, and catch a concert! June 28 - August 8
I'm working on a new CD recording! This album will celebrate the many brave women who moved to the US from other countries and made a life here. It will feature music by Jennifer Margaret Barker and Faina Lushtak.
I was awarded a We Are One Community grant from the Casa Italiana Sociocultural Center of Washington, DC
I gave the first Music On the 8ths concert as part of a new online series featuring Tulane University (Newcomb college) alumnae
And coming in October 2021, I'm looking forward to playing a concert of music by Jennifer Margaret Barker with other incredible musicians at the University of Delaware!
Back in 2020...
I finished my Daily Dose of Piano after 100 days - what an amazing journey that was! I met so many people virtually, composers, audience members, other musicians - it was a challenge for me as a musician, but also so inspiring to connect with so many people around the world.
I became an MTNA Nationally Certified Teacher of Music.
I was awarded an Emergency Relief & Recovery Grant from ArtsFairfax, a local arts organization.
Please feel free to drop me a note and say hi, join one of the YouTube premiere concert live chats, or even attend one of my live performances coming up in the next season. It would be so great to see you! I wish you and yours wellness and serenity.
Have a wonderful summer!
