The day will sure to bring a special joy!  I will be taking part in the international project:  Bach in the Subway 2017.

As I imagine how this day might unfold, I can't stop smiling.  Bach can be heard everywhere in the city!  What an amazing day this is going to be!  I am so happy and excited to take part in an amazing global project, and I hope many of my international colleague will join in.  My wonderful students at Ballard High School and some of my devoted private students will be performing as well.  I will be performing as "Doctors in Resonance," a marimba Duo with Dr, Kendra McLean,

Introducing Doctors in Resonance, a percussion duo!

Doctors Kendra McLean and Memmi Ochi form the delightful Seattle-based percussion duo Doctors in Resonance. Doctors in Resonance has quickly become a vibrant part of the classical music community through their generous participation in performances, clinics, fundraisers, and commissions. Their debut album, “The Rosewood Notebook,” features Bach transcriptions for marimba from Anna Magdalena’s Notebook. As individuals, these accomplished musicians perform regularly in orchestras throughout the Seattle-Tacoma area and each directs her own dynamic percussion studio.
