Hello dear friends,
I hope you had a good start into the new year and I am wishing you a joyful and fulfilling 2019!
Last week I was appointed ambassador of my beautiful hometown Weinheim. Thanks to the city
and everyone involved and to all the friends and people for coming out.
At the moment I am preparing a radio show for SWR2 "Jazztime: Female Jazz Piano“, which will be
broadcasted on April 27. Very inspiring to listen to the music and get a deeper insight about the lives
and careers of all these amazing women and role models. There was and is so much great talent!
I am looking forward to many workshops with wonderful colleagues, to collaborations with different
musicians and to get the chance to play solo piano concerts and exchanging with other wonderful
pianists. More things are coming up, I will keep you posted.
