Solo & Ensemble Festival

A Quick Introduction

In the handbook by Nevada Music Educator's Association for Solo & Ensemble Festival, it reads: "Achieving the ultimate in performance excellence shall be the goal. The Solo & Ensemble Festival is designed to encourage music excellence and performance artistry throughout the year rather than to prepare for a contest." 

Ahhh... I remember my years of doing Solo & Ensemble (and taking Command Performance senior year). Now I am thrilled to be able to help young musicians - especially in my hometown - take steps towards great artistry.

Chamber music (of which we know means two or more musicians making music together) is my huge passion and also an area of expertise. I have had the privilege of playing with some of the most outstanding musicians in the field of classical music, including principal members of the Canadian Brass, American Brass, Metropolitan Opera, Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, New York City Ballet, St. Martin in the Fields, London Symphonia, among many other orchestras worldwide. Additionally, I was a resident pianist of Carnegie Hall and Juilliard's chamber music group, Ensemble Connect, during my final two years in New York City, and served as resident collaborative pianist for winter and summer residencies at the Banff Centre of the Arts in Alberta, Canada.

Looking forward to making some music together!
