My musical research is dedicated to the work of underrepresented composers, with a focus on French organ repertoire. In May of 2022 I completed my PhD dissertation Les femmes invisibles: The Education, Careers, and Compositions of French Women Organists, 1872-1954. You can find an excerpt here.
For recitals, lectures, and workshops on this topic, or to access the full manuscript of the dissertation, please get in touch!
