Heeyoung Choi, Pianist

Venue: Laurel Heights United Methodist Church, 227 W. Woodlawn Avenue

Hailed by the New York Times as a "striking mezzo soprano… that sang and spoke potently and moved vivaciously," and by the San Francisco Chronicle for her "electrifying sense of fearlessness," Raehann Bryce-Davis is a recipient of the prestigious George London Award, the 2017 First Place and Audience Prize-winner of the Concorso Lirico Internazionale di Portofino competition, the 2015 Ninth International Hilde Zadek Competition at the Musikverein in Vienna, and the 2015 Metropolitan Opera National Council Pittsburgh District.  OPERA NEWS says she “...held the stage with admirable intensity and commitment… and didn't shy away from tapping into notes of lust, rage, and despair that were borderline animalistic.” READ MORE

Sponsored in part by Mattie-Jennie Trust Grant

Versatile, daring, and insightful, pianist Gabriela Martinez is establishing a reputation both internationally for the lyricism of her playing, her compelling interpretations, and her elegant stage presence.  “Martinez had her Steinway ringing and reeling in lofty, hyperbolic sounds, a symphonic movement for the keyboard that brought the delighted audience to its collective feet.” (Peninsula Reviews).  Her career includes world premieres of new music, live performance broadcasts, and interviews on TV and radio, including NPR, CNN, PBS, 60 Minutes, ABC, From The Top, Radio France, MDR Kultur and Deutsche Welle (Germany), NHK (Japan) and RAI (Italy).  She collaborated with GRAMMY Award-winning producer David Frost on Amplified Soul, her debut solo album released by Delos Records.  READ MORE
