Sophie Lippert as Concert Pianist
“Hi, I’m Sophie! I’m a professional classical pianist. I’ve played voraciously as a soloist and collaborative musician alike, and have been praised for my sensitivity, dynamism, expressiveness, and evocative musical maturity.
I received my degree in Classical Piano Performance under the tutelage of the inimitable Jon Kimura Parker at Rice University. The highlights of my performance career were performances of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue with the Seattle Philharmonic, Seattle Symphony, and Olympia Symphony, and I’ve established a successful career as orchestral soloist, innovative collaborative musician, and classical piano soloist. Now, I’m passionate about creating multi-genre concerts that incorporate conversations and group exploration.
My new CD, Time Travel, features a fantastic collection of some of my favorite solo piano pieces, written by 9 composers over the course of 300 years. In an innovative twist, I’ve included spoken intersitials, meant to cultivate connection and intimacy for listeners.”
What joy to share my music with you.
“I am also thrilled to be CEO of Connections Concerts Series, which launched its inaugural season in June 2019, and featured a wildly successful run of shows featuring the finest local multi-genre performers sharing music and conversation. Headliners included Joe Kye, Max Ribner, Saeeda Wright, Stephanie Schneiderman, Niema Lightseed, Saffire Bouchelion, Courtney Freed, Paula Byrne, Tim Gilson, and more! Visit the Connections website for more information about this fantastically innovative and powerful series. Though the series is on temporary hiatus due to the global pandemic, I’m so looking forward to more connective events in the future.
The Bottom Line: I am passionate about using classical music as a medium of connection, and making classical music more accessible, approachable, and engaging by creating concerts that incorporate conversations and group exploration. I’d love to share my music with you.”
