My 2020 season had some wonderful firsts planned, including my Italian Debut with the Borromeo String Quartet at Alba Music Festival, my Lincoln Center Debut with a work for viola & cello performed by Rae Gallimore, a work for solo harp for Melanie Genin at Roulette Brooklyn, and more… But, as is the case for many, the realities of COVID-19 both in New York and globally have meant those plans have had to change. As disappointing as it might be, that seems a very small price to pay for the health and wellbeing of our community.

In this very difficult time, now more than ever, I believe the artist plays a critical role in inspiring resilience, unity and hope, in the face of otherwise incomprehensible tragedy and disruption. To help rationalise this stark reminder of the fragility of our existence and our mortality.

It may be some time before the concert halls and public spaces open up as they once were, but I can assure you the music will not stop. Despite disruption to my 2020 season plans, I am hard at work on a series of new and innovative projects that will continue to reach people despite the restrictions of COVID-19. I look forward to announcing more details soon – in the meantime, consider subscribing to my newsletter to keep up to date with the latest developments.

Thank you to everyone who has reached out for your concern and well-wishes. Despite not having seen anyone for a very long while, I am grateful for my health, and will be forever thankful to this great city of New York and its essential workers for keeping me safe throughout this crisis. This is a remarkable place with a resilient people. I am proud to call myself a New Yorker, and in the words of our Governor, as New Yorkers we will get through this because we are “New York Tough”.
