Pianist

This year

Deborah Rambo Sinn hopes to start house concerts in her new city (Post Falls/Coeur d'Alene, Idaho), programs with her students in unusual places, and library events for children. She is passionate about bringing traditional music to nontraditional venues with creative programs. On the menu this year is an evening of fairy tales and piano duets (children) and classical music ala carte (house concerts with appetizers and adult beverages). This fall, she had a blast at Icicle Creek Adult Piano Camp where she had the opportunity to perform duets with Lisa Bergman.
