I am a classically trained concert pianist and vocal coach, native of Poland. I have been performing as a soloist and collaborative pianist since moving to Boston in 2003, after receiving my Masters of Music in Piano Performance from Stanisław Moniuszko Academy of Music in Gdańsk, my hometown. Upon completing a Graduate Performance Diploma at the Boston Conservatory, I was employed as a staff pianist for its vocal and instrumental departments. In the fall of 2018 I joined the Conservatory's Opera department, where I worked by playing for opera rehearsal and music directing opera scenes. In 2022 I became an Assistant Professor of Voice/Opera in that institution.
In the spring of 2014 I graduated from Boston University with the Doctorate of Musical Arts in Collaborative Piano, where I received a Graduate Assistantship, Dean’s Scholarship and a Collaborative Piano Department Honors Award. Between 2010 and 2016 I was working as a vocal coach and staff pianist at the Boston University Tanglewood Institute, an esteemed summer program for high-school singers and instrumentalists.
My biggest passion is opera. As an Emerging Artist for Boston Lyric Opera, I served as a rehearsal pianist for the company’s production of Stravinsky’s Rake’s Progress and performed recitatives on harpsichord for the same production at the Emerson Cutler Majestic Theater.
I frequently work as a rehearsal pianist for Boston opera companies, such as Enigma Chamber Opera, MassOpera, Guerilla Opera, Boston Opera Collaborative and North End Music and Performing Arts Center. I worked on the productions of La Boheme, Carmen, La Clemenza di Tito, The Consul, Curlew River, Dialogues of Carmelites, L’enfant et le sortilèges, Ghosts of Versailles, Don Giovanni, Glory Denied, Le Nozze di Figaro, Little Women, Turn of the Screw, Thumbprint, Don Pasquale, Prodigal Son, Rakes Progress, Rinaldo and La Traviata. My most recent engagements include Das Rhinegold with Wagner Institute at Miami Music Festival and La Damnation de Faust with Boston Youth Symphony Orchestra. In the summer of 2013 I served as a rehearsal pianist for an interdisciplinary project called Romeo and Juliet Project at the Chautauqua Institution.
My opera training includes fellowship in opera coaching at the Aspen Opera Center, vocal collaborative fellowship at Miami Music Festival and opera coaching residency at the Chicago Summer Opera. I currently serve as a head coach for MassOpera Young Artists training program at Longy School of Music at Bard College.
During my doctoral studies at Boston University I had frequently performed with its orchestras as an orchestral keyboardist and as a soloist. As a winner of the University Concerto Competition, I performed Ravel's Piano Concerto in G at Tsai Performance Center. In the same venue I also played Petrushka by Stravinsky with Boston University Symphony Orchestra under the baton of David Hoose. I also appeared as a soloist with New England Repertoire Orchestra under the direction of Tiffany Chang, performing Chopin’s Fantasy on Polish Airs for piano and orchestra. With the Boston University Chamber Orchestra under the direction of William Lumpkin I performed in The Postman Always Rings Twice, The Dialogues of Carmelites, Owen Wingrave, La Clemenza di Tito, Don Giovanni, Siren Song, Florencia en el Amazonas and Amahl and the Night VIsitors. In the summer of 2017 I performed Copland's Rodeo with Boston Landmarks Orchestra under the direction of Christopher Wilkins.
As a freelance musician, I performed in various venues, among them Jordan Hall, Berklee Performance Center, Goethe Institute, Merkin Hall at Kaufman Center in NYC and Ozawa Hall in Lenox, MA, among many others. In 2005 I won first prize at the First International Chamber Music Competition of New England, and consequently performed at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall in New York City.
I currently reside with my family in Belmont, Massachusetts.
