Happy 2017!!

Hi how are you? What a whirlwind time. 2017 is filled with so many possibilities don't you think? For me its already started out with a bang! On Saturday January 21st, I performed with 2 other outstanding piano/composers, Liz Story and Lisa Downing.  Both are amazing women with their own style of piano compositions.  We performed at The Soka University Performing Arts Center - hosted by David Palmer.  This was a one of a kind experience for me. The crew from the center treated us all like family, and were very open while making sure we had food, water and a area where we could rehearse and change into our performance outfits, make up.. you know that kind of fun stuff!

I also met some wonderful new fans and many of you in the SoCal area came and supported us! .  I was thrilled to share that night with you all and to talk with you too!   I had been away from the stage for about two years, so I was a tad bit concerned about that. But, with rehearsing and keeping my focus on playing for you - I was on my game. 

Hey its Me, Liz and Lisa!! Hanging out in the foyer meeting and greeting people!

January was a wonderful month of fun, music and meeting music friends, and catching up with music friends that live out of state! I am going to blog about everything.  I just wanted to say hello!  Keep in touch.. because lots of music is coming out of me!  

Love to you all!

A musician's path to her/his muse is sometimes an easy one. Other times, it is filled with potential pitfalls or unexpected obstacles. Kori Linae Carothers faced just that when, during a kindergarten health screening at the age of 5, it was discovered she was deaf in her left ear. Her young peers found out and the teasing began. In addition, throughout elementary and high school, Kori was constantly told she would never become a musician. Undeterred, she kept learning and practicing, never surrendering her dream. Despite these discouragements, Carothers was passionate about her calling and now, years later, she is an acclaimed pianist and keyboard player with four albums to her credit. Clearly, she is an example of a person following her muse with courage, humor, and determination. - Bill Binkelman
