American pianist April Sun tells stories with heart (-felt hammers and strings). A native of Bozeman, Montana, she finds inspiration in wilderness, and her creativity is naturally boundless. She is a founding member of The Meadowlark Piano Trio, recently named a semifinalist in the 2017 Fischoff Competition. April currently pursues a DMA in collaborative piano under the guidance of Anita Pontremoli. Previously, April studied at CIM with Daniel Shapiro and received both a MM in piano performance and a certificate in pedagogy. Passionate about music education and community service, April teaches throughout the Cleveland metropolitan area, and she is an artist-in-residence at Judson Park Retirement Community. Away from the piano, April enjoys tinkering with recordings, hiking, reading poetry, and savoring food with spirit(s).
