Patricia believes to be a complete musician one must extend themselves in many forms of art. In addition to fortepiano, she plays a wide repertoire of modern piano, including solo, chamber and orchestral music. She is also an actor, appearing in plays regularly and she helps create shows which combine music, painting, and theatre. With her repertoire choices and research, she strives for inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility by enhancing the profiles of underrecognized female composer-pianists, outreach to audiences who tend to connect rarely if at all with classical music performance, the integration of verbal and musical modes of informing listeners, and the harnessing of video and internet media to reach a potentially unlimited online audience. Finally, she finds great joy in giving back through teaching masterclasses.
From Fall 2021, she is a Teaching Assistant and DMA student at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro under the tutelage of Dr. Andrew Willis. Patricia has been named a Minerva Scholar, the highest recognition a doctoral student can receive at UNC Greensboro. She is also a member of the Board of Directors of the Historical Keyboard Society of North America.
