Lucie Chartin (soprano) and Luba Podgayskaya (piano) premiered the completed Baby Book at the Incontri Musicali chamber music festival in Spoleto, Italy in August 2017.

In everything I do, I seek to connect with people.

I have a genuine interest in their lives. I want to share their laughter and their pain. I believe in creating transcendent and transformative experiences that ask them to feel, think, question, and discuss.

I do this through new music. My music is a conversation—to illustrate stories, to share my own voice and the voices of others, and to encourage and guide my listeners to share of themselves. 

 I want audiences to find something in my music to love, understand, appreciate, and carry with them.
