Stephanie’s passion for chamber music has resulted in diverse performing styles and collaborations with world-renowned artists and ensembles including the Cavani Quartet, Jeffrey Irvine, Peter Salaff, Michael Tree, Mikhal Kopleman, and Jamey Haddad. She has performed recitals in the United States and Europe, notably at the Kennedy Center, Conservatorio Santa Cecilia in Rome, and on National Public Radio’s From the Top! Series.
She is a founding member of the KASA Quartet, winners of the 2017 Coltman National Chamber Music Competition. Stephanie has been a performing artist at the Caroga Lake Music Festival (CLMF) since its founding in 2012 and went on tour to Switzerland with CLMF and CMC in 2017.
