Speeches in East Asia and Eastern Europe

Over the next few months I will have keynote speeches for the national music education conferences in both Poland and Estonia, as well as lectures for some universities in East Asia: China Conservatory (Beijing), Tokyo University, Yokohama National University, and others. More information will be posted here shortly.


Debut Recital and Recording / Book Releases

Soon I will be giving my first full-length solo recital in Norway as a classical singer, along with an excellent Bergen-based pianist, Mai Goto. The announcement is shown above (Click HERE to download the announcement, HERE for the recital program, and HERE for the complete Grieg Research School program). We are also doing a recording session during the dates around the recital (end of November, 2017), and we intend to produce a full album of classical music and organize a professional recital tour (along with book-release lectures) for venues in Europe, North America and East Asia.
