I’m performing for the Estonian President!

2015 June I hope your summer has started off well! I have had a very active summer so far, but the best part is yet to come… I get to spend time with my family, enjoy water sports, travel, sunbathe and re-energize!

I have some exciting news – I will be performing for the Estonian President, Mr. Toomas Hendrik Ilves, this September in New York. I wish his birthday was closer to the performance date so I could sing Marilyn Monroe’s “Happy Birthday Mr. President,” but unfortunately it isn’t. Oh well, I’ll find another song to surprise him and our audience!

Recently I have attended a lot of new Broadway shows and I would like to recommend a show that absolutely stole my heart, “An American In Paris.” It truly resembles everything I love about musical theater. It’s breathtaking! Click here if you want to find out more.

An Inspiring Spring and Pop Singing!

11229440_10153299087614438_1661316755_oLook at those blossoms in the picture…you can almost feel how alive, energized, inspiring and captivating they are which is exactly how my last months have been!

After looking back at my prior updates, I realized that I haven’t spoken of the pop song “Here We Go Again” which I recorded last year. I had the honor to collaborate with Billboard Hot 100 chart composer Mark Barkan, Grammy nominated Bruce Foster and Mike Flannery. The song is written by talented songwriters Mark Barkan, Rob Preuss and Rene Veneziale and is available in all of the biggest music libraries such as iTunes, Spotify, Amazon etc. If you like what you’re hearing, drop me an email and I’ll send you an iTunes gift card for full song download.

If you still haven’t seen Dave Malloy’s contemporary show “Ghost Quartet,” then next Monday is your last chance. Go and experience it because it is the coolest musical theater concept ever: there’s amazing music, whiskey drinking, and playing along with performers! Click here to find out more!

Back to playing piano and singing!

84fc939a357271922a0470b11ed1c381 I hope all is well! As much as I love winter, I’m ready for spring time. I can’t wait to set up my terrace with flowers, grill out and sip wine while everything is blooming around me…

A little more than a year ago I was inspired to get back in to playing piano after seeing “Once” on Broadway. I studied piano for 7 years, graduated Children’s Music School at the age of 14 and then never really played again because singing got my full attention. Finally, I’ve found my way back to playing piano and I’m enjoying it more than ever. Click left to the link or here to see my version of singing and playing “The Hill” from Once.

If you like classical music, you’re going to really enjoy the New York Live Arts festival which is dedicating a full day to Arvo Pärt, the most played living composer, including a panel discuccion, movie screening and performances. Click here to find out more.

All the best,
