Explore the World of music with me


As a lifelong explorer of the world of music, my journey began at the age of 3, seated with my parents in a church, marveling at the pianist who played hymns each week. That pivotal moment ignited a lifelong passion for understanding the magic of music and its profound impact.

As I've matured, my perspective has broadened. My experiences in college, marked by additional studies in broadcast journalism and reporting for a local news station, unveiled a disheartening lack of awareness about global and community issues. This revelation made me realize the crucial role of communication in bridging gaps and fostering understanding.

In response, I've dedicated myself to a mission beyond the confines of traditional classical repertoire. I strive to use music as a unifying force that transcends boundaries, speaks to contemporary social issues, and creates a space for everyone in the world of classical music. My aspiration might seem lofty, but with every program I embrace, I aim to be a catalyst for positive social change.

Welcome to my musical journey, where every note resonates with a purpose, and every listener finds their place in this harmonious world of music.

Earth Requiem

St. Mark's Church on the Bowery, 131 E. 10th St. , New York NY

An interdisciplinary performance and installation conceived by artist Diana Wege. It is a response to climate change, pollution, resource depletion, and nuclear capability. The piece immerses the audience in a near-future where the degradation and extinction of nature is symbolized by a choir of languages from throughout the globe and the apparition of a landscape painting catching fire and restored by the reversal of humanity’s destructive ways. Earth Requiem joins multiple disciplines to warn us of a clear and present danger. Mark Shapiro will conduct original music by Errollyn Wallen and Jeff Beal, performed by a choir accompanied by piano.
