Major achievement of this year: My CD is out!!! Thank you, Frank Proto!!!  

🎹✨⭐️My new CD* is out!! This is the achievement of a 3 years project, since the prolific and amazing American composer Frank Proto, first started to write and dedicate a whole piano concerto to me!! The world premiere was last year at Meadowkark Festival ( Director: Hans STURM) with the Sybarite5 ensemble from NYC and Tyler White conductor. And last summer I had the great honor and joy to record it with a string orchestra in Cincinnati with the wonderful musicians from the Cincinnati Symphony, masterfully conducted by Michael Shertock. I am so grateful to Frank Proto for producing this CD and for being the artistic director of the project. And in the first place, I am truly humbled and honored by the inestimable present of his magnificent music to me! 💗

Zen @ Liberate Hollywood- Los Angeles!  

So many wonderful performances have happened lately that I barely keep up with my website! We found our inner peace and opened our shakras up to the music and to our wonderful audience at Liberate Hollywood 2 weeks ago! With Derrick Dymalski, composer and multi instrumentalist, Dalton Yoder, on guitar and bass and composer, and myself on piano and vocals and with some original lyrics of mine. Yang and Yin harmonized well. :)

 

I had a blast performing in piano solo at Alliance Francaise!! 

LoI had a blast performing my piano solo recital in Mexico at the Centro Del Arte! Merci Alliance Francaise! The hall was packed up and the audience so warm and appreciative! And such wonderful hospitalit!  Happy to have had the great bassist and composer Andres Martin as my guest for one duet together! Hasta luego!! Until next time!!
