Upcoming Events in 2023

New year, new performances! I am looking forward to a busy season of touring and travels, performing as a soloist around the country, as well as a part of Dash Duo and Seraph Brass. I hope to see you at some of my performances this season!

I’ve had the pleasure of having a few interviews the past few months and I’m excited to share these talks: Please check out WFMT’s “Sounds Classical” January 20th episode, where I speak with LaRob K. Rafael and Kristina Lynn for both conversation and a live performance with Grammy-nominated pianist, Marta Aznavoorian! They are also continuing to post videos of our performance as a playlist on Mary Elizabeth Bowden on what Sounds Classical. January 19th my episode launched for the podcast Crushing Classical with Jennet Ingle, where I talk more about building an international solo career, chamber ensembles, and some of the new collaborations that have launched recently!

For anyone who was unable to attend the world premiere of Clarice Assad’s Bohemian Queen, I welcome you to watch the live world premiere from this past November - this performance is with the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Allen Tinkham!

My 23/24 season is starting to fill up with performances and travel, so if you would like to collaborate as part of a concert series, Artist-in-Residence, lecture, or festival for either next season or throughout 2024, 2025, or beyond, please reach out!
