MSAC Individual Artist Award (IAA)2020
Artist StatementMy artistic mission is to demonstrate and prove with every new project, whether it is a CD recording, concert program, poster design or album cover art, that classical music from any period can and should be presented as a relevant, contemporary, vibrant and reflecting art form. I strive to create thought provoking and appealing musical narratives that are easy to follow for any music and art lover because I strongly believe that the future and the popularity of contemporary classical art are in the hands of its creators.
