Board of Directors
Since settling on Maui 18 years ago, Lotus Dancer has become actively involved as a versatile pianist performing as soloist, and collaborator with chamber music ensembles, vocalists and choral groups. She was the featured pianist for the all Mozart concert with MCO, March 2015, playing the Mozart Piano Concerto in D minor. As a strong advocate for inspiring musical performances on our island, Lotus is a board member for Maui Chamber Orchestra, Maui Choral Arts, and past member of Ebb and Flow Arts. She received her BA in music at the University of Colorado; MA in music from Illinois University, and has taken advanced studies at the Eastman School of Music and the Julliard-Aspen Summer School in Aspen. In addition to actively performing, Lotus is a loving and dedicated teacher with over 55 years of experience both at the college level as well as in her private studio. Advocating excellence and developing stability is her objective to being on the MCO board of directors. The chamber orchestra presence has been lacking here on Maui until now. The successful seasons launched in the past few years have gained enormous respect locally and her enthusiasm for marketing to reach wider audiences continues to flourish.
