Eastman - Rochester New Horizons Music
The Birthplace of New Horizons.  Founded in 1991 by Dr. Roy Ernst, Eastman School of Music, Rochester, NY
Currently I am working on the publication of the The Goldberg Project, which consists of two books, Bach and the Goldberg and The Goldberg and My Self, as well as my CD performance of Bach’s Goldberg Variations. I am also working on the publication of my article “Conquering Terror by Feeling Terrified: How I used my Terror of Playing the Goldberg from Memory to Overcome my Terror of Performing.”

In addition I perform on the harpsichord on stages in Germany, France, Mexico, and the United States, and I have appeared on TV and radio broadcasts. I was born in Utrecht, Holland to German parents. My interest in the harpsichord was born when my father built a Zuckerman harpsichord kit. My father’s gift inspired me to learn everything about the art of harpsichord playing and accompanying at the Conservatoire National d’Aix en Provence, at the University of Pennsylvania, at the Conservatoire National de Region de Lille, and at the Juilliard School. My quest to share powerfully the wonderful repertory of this unique instrument has continued at the Center of Human Encouragement in Rochester.

One of my favorite musical experiences was to play in the Penn Baroque Ensemble, while I was studying bioengineering at the University of Pennsylvania. We met once a week and just played the music. Some of us just attended the weekly rehearsals; while a Soprano and I spend every moment we had rehearsing, learning about the history of baroque music, and advertising our concerts. I changed my major and I became a full time musician, because of this joyful experience.
