A CD release!

Hi everyone! The past few months have (as always) been a whirlwind of rehearsals. We are now less than a week until Stars of Tomorrow, the next installment of Whimsical Birdsong, with works by Ravel, Couperin, and Montez. Our lovely performers include yours truly on piano, Laura Pereira del Rio on violin, Michelle Hromin on clarinet, and Kristina Cook as our resident soprano. Come support me in my project and support the musicians performing with me!

In the midst of all of this, I am also releasing my very first CD! This is a huge milestone that I am thrilled to reach. The main work on the CD is the live performance of Beethoven’s 2nd piano concerto from back in June, and the other solo works are also from a live performance back in Utah. They will be for sale at the concert on December 7th for $20, or you can order them online from
Amazon for a little extra. It's so exciting!

I’m also very excited to be going on tour again with the Piatigorsky Foundation! This time around I will be going with one of their regular mezzo-sopranos to Arizona in February (the perfect time to go to Arizona) for some awesome collaborative performances. I have never been to Arizona before, but I do have experience playing with singers, so I'm looking forward to the combination of new and familiar. I'm sure I will make another tour video!

Once I get back, I’ll be jumping right into the next performance—in the middle of February, I’ll be participating in an awesome concert celebrating the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment (women in the US getting the right to vote). I will be playing a gorgeous Ballade by Romantic composer Amy Beach.

Over the rest of the semester I will have a few concerts here and there, including a recital at DOROT with some of the repertoire of this Saturday's Ravel concert, but my next big solo concert will be my graduating master's recital (!!) on at 5:30pm on April 10th at Mannes. I will be playing Ravel's Tombeau de Couperin again, as well as the entire Couperin suite, Sonata Op. 110 by Beethoven, and Fantasia on an Obstinate by John Corigliano.

Once I graduate, life is going to get very interesting! I'm hoping to move with my husband Taylor into specifically designated "artist" lofts in my hometown of Peekskill. The apartments are so nice and so affordable for this area. I will continue teaching at CSPA, performing wherever I can, and cultivating the classical music community in the schools of Peekskill by starting my own program similar to the one I participated in at PS 321 in Brooklyn with Simone Dinnerstein. I am also planning on applying to the 2021 Van Cliburn Competition on top of preparing future concerts for Whimsical Birdsong, so I'll stay very busy!
