I’m pleased to announce that I received my second Minnesota State Arts Board grant to create a multimedia piece entitled Seasonal Sketches of Central Minnesota. I will film beautiful nature scenes throughout Central Minnesota and will create soundscapes to match each scene. I’m very excited and grateful for this opportunity.
Check out the opera short I wrote for the Minnesota Opera’s MNiatures. Leigh Opulent.
Check out Impossible Musics from Corrector Records. My piece Drip Switch is featured on this mixtape. All of the pieces on this mixtape are wonderful! Please check them out!
I’m currently working two projects. A film score for Stranger in the Woods and Impossible Musics for Corrector Records. I had a lot of fun doing the Live Piano Hotline. I am going to start doing livestreams once a month. More info to come.
Stephanie’s Live Piano Hotline
I’m working with Springboard for the Arts’ Artist’s Respond: Combating Social Isolation. The COVID-19 crisis has resulted in increased levels of social isolation in our communities, as an artist in Minnesota I want to create moments of joy, solace, solidarity, sharing, and a sense of connection – for those who are feeling most isolated in these pandemic times. We are ardently working to ensure community building in this era where many of us are forced to isolate-and what better way to do that than to share music? I’m reaching out to local retirement communities, and long term care facilities to see if there’s an interest in having residents experience live piano music for one hour via YouTube. I will be performing a Live Piano Hotline in order to combat social isolation during the holiday season. This is a free event. I will play a variety of piano music including Classical, Rock, Pop, Holiday, and Broadway. The dates for the Live Piano Hotline are 12/6 at 10:00am, 12/10 at 6:00pm, 12/12 at 3:00pm, and 12/19 at 3:00pm. Please let me know if you know of any organizations that may be interested in listening to live piano music at a distance. Links to the livestream performances below:
