I am a classically trained concert pianist, accompanist 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 also joined the Conservatory's Opera department, where I work until now. 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 Turn of the Screw, La Clemenza di Tito, Thumbprint, Curlew River, Glory Denied, The Consul, Dialogues of Carmelites, Rinaldo, Don Pasquale, La Traviata, La Bohème, Carmen, Don Giovanni, L’enfant et le sortilèges, Little Women, Le Nozze di Figaro and Ghosts of Versailles. In the summer of 2013 I played for 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 coaching residency at the Chicago Summer Opera.
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 dr. Tiffany Chang, performing Chopin’s Fantasy on Polish Airs for piano and orchestra. With the Boston University Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Dr. William Lumpkin I performed in The Postman Always Rings Twice by Stephen Paulus, The Dialogues of Carmelites by Poulenc, Britten’s Owen Wingrave, Mozart's La Clemenza di Tito and Don Giovanni, Siren Song by Jonathan Dove, Florencia en el Amazonas by Daniel Catan and Menotti's 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 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. In 2014 I also became a finalist for the New World Symphony in Miami, FL, during their national audition tour.
I live in Belmont, MA with my family and serve as a pianist/organist at St. Mary's of Assumption Parish in Brookline, MA.
