Additional Info:

I am a young keyboardist (piano, harpsichord, electronic keyboards) with 8 years of experience with various forms of accompanying/collaborative keyboard work.

Currently, I’m a Class of 2023 student at Haverford College majoring in music and mathematics. In college I have played in chamber ensembles, including two piano trios (the first performed selections of Clara Schumann’s and Germaine Tailleferre’s trios, the second the whole of Dmitri Shostakovich’s E minor trio) and a piano duo (playing Darius Milhaud’s Scaramouche). I also performed a virtual, interactive piano concert, reinterpreting UK-based composer Lola Perrin’s Significantus to reflect upon collective care within the climate crisis and the pandemic in April 2020.

More recently, I have studied harpsichord both as a solo and as an accompaniment instrument. In Dec. 2021, I performed on harpsichord with two other students who played violin and viola in Haverford’s chamber music concert. We performed select movements from sonatas by Dietrich Buxtehude and by J.S. Bach/C.P.E. Bach. I have some familiarity with reading figured bass, enough to write out my own realization but not to improvise on the spot.

In high school, I frequently accompanied ensembles, most often choirs, including PMEA District 11 Choir (2017-2019), PMEA Region 6 Choir (2017-2018), PMEA All-State Choir (2017), PMEA All-State Concert Band (2018), NAfME All-Eastern Orchestra (2019), and various school ensembles, including one year in a jazz band.

From 8th to 12th grades, I played keyboard synth for school musical pit orchestras (shows in chronological order): Les Miserables, Big Fish, The Secret Garden, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Spamalot. Multiple times I played the primary Keyboard 1 part.

I have a DipABRSM in Piano Performance (awarded in 2018). I am also a composer with some experience with electronics and multimedia work. In addition, I play the viola at an intermediate level and was principal violist in school orchestra throughout high school, and I have at various times throughout my school and college years sung in choirs.
