Audina Claudine Myers

NYU Washington, DC and CapitalBop presented Amina Claudine Myers in a rare and special solo performance as the fall installment of the Traveling Loft series. Amina Claudine Myers is one of the most widely respected pianists of her generation — though she’s never become the most widely known. The performance was opened by Fred Foss

In advance of the concert, Amina Claudine Myers offered a free master class as part of CapitalBop's Traveling Loft Series. The class was aimed specifically at students but open to all

Special thanks to NYU Trustee Ronald Abramson and The Anne and Ronald Abramson Family Foundation for generously supporting this program.
