Sheila Weidendorf

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.

Upcoming Events:


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!
