Dear Friends and Piano Lovers,
Hello and Happy Fall!
I can’t believe it’s almost November! A lot has happened since my last newsletter…
Over the summer, I recorded my debut solo album featuring music by Jennifer Margaret Barker, Faina Lushtak, and Caroline Shaw. Stay tuned for news about its release!
This semester has been off to a busy start. I just joined the piano faculty at the University of Virginia, in addition to still teaching at Catholic University and in my private studio. UVA is wonderful so far, and as a bonus I get to enjoy the beautiful colors of Charlottesville in the fall.
Read on for news about recent and upcoming performances.
In October, I gave a concert for the Friday Music Series at Georgetown University. I spoke to the audience about the pieces and composers. Before the concert at Georgetown, I spoke to Dr. Anthony DelDonna’s class “Live Music in Context” about my program and about new music performance and advocacy.
I also performed a solo concert for FNAR - Friday Nights at Redeemer - in Bethesda, MD in October, in a more cabaret-like setting. It was a fun change from my normal concerts, with blue jeans, drinks (for the audience!), and an open mic beforehand.
In November I’ll attend the VA Music Teachers Association state conference for the first time, where I will also perform in the Teachers Concert.
