First up, on Friday, July 15, beloved pianist/composer and Steinway Artist Robin Spielberg performs, consistently winning the hearts of listeners around the world with her compelling melodies and sensitive piano techniques since debuting her first recording of original solos for piano.  A prolific composer, Spielberg has 20 recordings to her credit and appears on over 40 compilations around the world. “From the moment she walks on stage, until the last note gently caresses the room, Spielberg casts a spell on her audience that is palpable, visceral, and spiritual. Better said-after you see her perform, you’ll just feel a whole lot better about the world,”  says Bruce Bressack, of Hippo Press New Hampshire.  She is a celebrity spokesperson for the American Music Therapy Association. Spielberg’s work with music and wellness has been documented in The new York Times and in segments on LifeTime Live and ABC News. As Spokesperson, she conducts workshops and seminars on the topic of music and healing throughout the U.S. in hospitals, schools, community centers, nursing care facilities and performing arts centers. Robin Spielberg is represented on tour by Kosson Talent.
