First, there was the Redeemer Piano Ensemble concert - eight pianists on four pianos under the direction of conductor Mary Hinely - on Sunday, November 3rd. The week prior to the performance, we had four rehearsals - a total of ten hours - in downtown Atlanta. Of course, I was practicing at home, too. But all our hard work paid off; our program, which included works by Bach, Haydn, Mendelssohn, Rossini, and Bizet, among others, was well received by our audience. Best of all, we had a blast doing it.

On the heels of these deeply satisfying experiences, I am more determined than ever to become the best pianist and educator I am capable of and to continue making music with others. I am already hard at work on new music in preparation for a May concert with my friend and colleague Natalie Hardy. We start rehearsals on Friday.
