Described by Gramophone Magazine as a pianist with a “strong lyrical bent and feeling for nuance,” Kate Boyd has performed solo recitals worldwide, including Carnegie Hall, Vienna, Dublin, Hamburg, Greece, and many other venues throughout North America.
Dr. Boyd enjoys collaborating with artists from all disciplines, including dancers, filmmakers and poets. She has performed dozens of chamber music works, including a televised performance of George Crumb’s "Music for a Summer Evening," for two pianos and two percussion; and John Corigliano’s "Chiaroscuro," for two pianos tuned a quarter tone apart. Boyd is a sought-after adjudicator and clinician, and has worked with students of all ages.
A passionate advocate for the music of our time, Boyd has performed numerous world premieres, and recorded two CDs of 20th and 21st Century music. Her solo CD featuring works of John Cage was met with critical acclaim and has received more than 100,000 digital downloads and streams to date.
