So much has happened in this last year: I completed my Master’s at the University of North Texas and won a position with the Sarajevo Philharmonic for one season!  This amazing opportunity is a cultural exchange program through the Bosnian-Herzegovinian American Academy of Arts and Sciences.  It’s always been a […]

End of semester/Beginning of summer

The semester ended about a week ago, and I’ve definitely been relaxing.  My recital and jury are finished, but now I’m getting ready for another recital in June (see calendar), as well as some performances with Venice Symphony and a wedding.  Aside from that music, I’ll be working on Bartok’s […]

New Semester

The new year is up and running, with plenty to be busy with. This semester’s solo works include: Hindemith op. 25, no. 1; JC Bach Concerto in C minor; and Schumann Adagio and Allegro. I anticipate Hindemith with absorb most of my time, as it’s lack of tonality and abundance […]

Vermont, Week 4

This last week in Vermont was quite busy, everyone’s ensembles are performing, and I had my last two lessons of the festival with Karen Ritscher.  Last week was a nice break to not have lessons, but practicing 4 hours a day and not having a lesson for over a week […]

Vermont, Week 2

This past week at GMCMF has been very busy and very productive in both my lessons and in chamber music, and, of course, fun! I had my last two lessons with Dr. Dubois this week, as she is off to another music festival in Croatia (how cool is that??).  She […]

Vermont, Days 3, 4 and 5

It’s about midday on Day 5, and I realized I haven’t updated the past couple days, so here’s what’s been going on: Wednesday: Today began as it normally does here at GMCMF, wake up, practice for 4 hours, lunch time, then a break before my chamber rehearsal at 2:30.  Today […]

Vermont, Day 2

My second day of GMCMF has come to a close via a student concert with some pretty talented performers.  Most memorable to me was the last person, a pre-college girl from Cincinnati playing Sarasate’s Zigeunerweisen, which if you don’t know the piece, it’s pretty crazy-virtuosic.  All of the performers were […]
