I am so excited to be performing my first featured Groupmuse! During this performance, I will be sharing a diverse program that showcases many genres including classical, jazz, and bluegrass. We view these as very different styles but they are interconnected! As they say, there's only two types of music, good and bad! I am honored to be accompanied by the amazing pianist, Chris McCarthy. We hope you'll join us for an intimate and fun evening!


This Planetarymuse is presented by Groupmuse Foundation’s Planetary Music Movement. This bridge-building endeavor guides Groupmuse to overcome the historical Eurocentrism within the classical music tradition, by celebrating historical and contemporary musical traditions of the planet, particularly and imminently through the inclusion and celebration of works by artists of African descent. You can learn more here.
