Bio in Brief//
Something of an "accidental pianist," I returned to music a few years ago after a 20-year hiatus. I perform western classical chamber music, extemporaneous keyboard meditations, & offer piano lessons & performance coaching for teens & adults. I have also been known to provide musical direction for theatrical productions and produce other concerts and events as the mood strikes. I currently perform with my classical trio, Trio Rasa, and my improvisational trio, Trio Improviso and have also been immersed in a long-term and ongoing Brahms project with violinist Tekla Cunningham. I am the keyboardist for Trinity Lutheran Church in Freeland, Washington here on Whidbey Island.

Trio Rasa plays...
The Many Shades of RASA
Trio RASA performs trio works by Amy Beach, Claude Debussy, and Maurice Ravel~AND revisits our Reinhardt Refracted program with special guest, guitarist Troy Chapman.
We will explore the many shades of Django, including music that inspired his aspirations as a composer. Hear both well-known Django tunes as well as some of his more seldom-performed pieces paired--like fine wine--with music by Claude Debussy, Amy Beach, Germaine Tailleferre (& more!). We'll also share a ghazal by the great Mehdi Hassan, born in pre-partition Rajasthan--the land where the Romani peoples originated. Like light passed through a prism, come experience the many colors of Django Reinhardt!
