2017 Clara Wells Fellowship

I am pleased to announce that I have just been awarded one of two 2017 Clara Wells Fellowships through the American Matthay Association!

The two Clara Wells Fellows (one high school, one collegiate) will be in residence during the Matthay Piano Festival, June 14-17th in Tempe, Arizona. I am looking forward to participating in the festival performances, deepening my understanding of Tobias Matthay's pedagogical works, and meeting the members of the association.

Radio interview (Radio Arts Foundation, St. Louis)

In case you missed my interview with Kathy Lawton Brown last week on 107.3 (The Radio Arts Foundation) in St. Louis, you can listen to the whole thing right here. We had a great time talking and getting to know each other - I am so appreciative to the radio station for having me!

Amidst the conversation, you can also hear three tracks from my new CD, Scarlatti Now:

1. Sonata in C major, K. 159 (Domenico Scarlatti)

2. Figaro's Cavatina from the Barber of Seville (Gioachino Rossini, transcribed by Grigory Ginzburg)

6. Une barque sur l'océan (Maurice Ravel)

Belhaven residency

I had so much fun last month performing and teaching at Belhaven University in Jackson, Mississippi - What a great facility and group of students! Huge thanks to Dean Steve Sachs for hosting me and to the Mississippi Federation of Music Clubs for attending the event!
