Known for her innovative performances and her daring programming, Barbara Lieurance brings new music to concert halls around the United States and Europe. The Metroland of New York writes that Ms. Lieurance “wowed audiences,” the Maine Sunday Telegram notes that “at the end of the concert, Ms. Lieurance had . . . the audience standing,” and the Kalamazoo Gazette reports that “her tender nuances, the lovely tones she brought forth, and her exquisite sense of timing and musical structure richly demonstrated how enchanting and profound this music is.” Her workshops on new music and non-traditional piano performance techniques have been presented in many venues, including the Berklee College of Music, University of British Columbia, Western Michigan University, and Kalamazoo College.

Ms. Lieurance is an active pedagogue, teaching at Winchester Community Music School and maintaining a private studio. She served for years as the chair of the National Piano Guild’s Winchester Center, and is a former board member of the New England Piano Teachers’ Association. Ms. Lieurance is also the founder of Tardigrade Stage, a concert series designed to harness the power of live arts in building resilient communities.
