Welcome

Welcome! This website is a one-woman show, and I am not always completely up to date with it. Thanks for your patience!


Dropping Fall 2022! My first foray into music videos — a few months in development, I’m excited to share them. These are possible because …

I’m a fiscal year 2021 recipient of a Creative Support for Individuals grant from the
Minnesota State Arts Board.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant
from the Minnesota State Arts Board
, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural
heritage fund.

(Go Minnesota Voters!!)


August 2022: COMING SOON! Possibly even to a location near you! I’m excited to share that I will be performing selections from Prayers for a Feverish Planet in many places for the 2022-23 season.

Until then, please enjoy this interview with the as always amazing Tyler Kline on his WSMR radio show, Modern Notebook.


April 2022: Thank you to Tom Crann and Minnesota Public Radio for this interview about my project Prayers for a Feverish Planet.


 

I’m SO excited to be named a 2022 Retreat Artist at Everwood Farmstead Foundation in Glenwood City, Wisconsin!


I do have some news! April 21-24, 2022 — Prayers for a Feverish Planet will be performed on the University of Minnesota Morris campus.


NEWS: November 30, 2021: All composers who submitted scores for “Prayers for a Feverish Planet” have been contacted with results. (Some emails bounced back, please let me know if you haven’t heard.)

Thank you to ALL who sent me works — wow! A phenomenal response of more than 170 pieces (actually, 316 individual movements!) from composers in 35 countries. Website updates ongoing; there is a dedicated project page for “Prayers” — be sure to check back for more info.


NEWS: Fall 2021: I’m delighted to have been chosen as a University of Minnesota Institute for Advanced Studies (IAS) Residential Fellow to work on “Prayers for a Feverish Planet.” The fellowship has provided the time for me to really dig in to the works sent and begin crafting a series of programs. (Also, living in Minneapolis, even for a brief time, is amazing.)


NEWS: I’m thrilled to be a part of Tyler Kline’s Orchard, releasing on Neuma Records in January of 2022.


NEWS: Rückblick: New Piano Music Inspired by Brahms releases on November 13, 2020 on the Furious Artisans Label!


The disc features all works I commissioned, considering the ideas of transformation and borrowing from Johannes Brahms. It’s been a joy to work with and record the music of Marc Chan, Luke Dahn, Joseph Dangerfield, Jocelyn Hagen, and Edie Hill.
