The Summer of 2015 has been full of adventure. In June, I spent three weeks visiting family and traveling in Estonia. Along the way, I performed two solo recitals: in Muuga and at the Keila Musikakool. Exploring a new country, and learning about a new culture was an eye opening experience in many ways. I really hope to return soon!
In July, I was on the Piano Faculty at Camp Encore/Coda in Sweden, Maine. Summer No. 7 proved to be one of the best. Fantastic performance opportunities, inspired students, wonderful hiking and spending time with old and new friends. With the emphasis at camp being placed on community, sharing music, a non-competitive atmosphere, enjoying the beautiful surroundings of Maine...this month in nature is always a highlight.
Now the final stop: Returning back home to California for two performances. My final goal will soon be reached, and I am very excited to have the chance to perform at URC in Davis and the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento once again.
