Praised by the New York Times for her “crystalline performances, gestural expressiveness, and careful attention to color”, and by the Boston Globe for her “effortless incisiveness”, award-winning Canadian pianist Dr. Katherine Dowling performs across North America and Europe. Equally compelling as a solo, collaborative, and ensemble player, she holds a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from Stony Brook University.
Katherine Dowling performed last October at the Avaloch Farm Music Institute several compositions amongst which the Variations on a theme by Ludwig van Beethoven.
The Avaloch Farm Music Institute provides a unique opportunity for chamber music and jazz ensembles at any stage of development, to have the time and space to work intensively on repertoire, prepare for recordings, concerts or competitions, work with composers on commissions, and forge or reconnect to a group musical identity.
