An Evening of Solo Piano Music and Stories with Robin Meloy Goldsby
Pianist, Steinway Artist, and storyteller Robin Meloy Goldsby comes to Heidelberg for a fun-filled, charming, and meaningful evening of music and tales about her adventures in Germany. At times hilarious, sometimes moving, Robin’s brand new program taps into the magic of an expatriate life.
Robin Meloy Goldsby's solo piano career began in posh New York City venues and exclusive Nantucket resorts, and has taken her to the European castles, five-star hotels, and concert stages where she now performs. Following the release of her first two solo piano albums and the publication of her hit book, Piano Girl, Robin appeared on National Public Radio’s All Things Considered and Piano Jazz with Marian McPartland. Robin has been on the prestigious Steinway Artist roster since 2010.
Robin’s solo piano music—transparent, effortless, and spellbinding—lures her listeners to a place that feels like home. With seven solo piano albums to her name, Robin uses her music and stories to serve as a cultural ambassador for European organizations dedicated to transatlantic relations. In 2017, she played her Home & Away program at Buckingham Palace for HRH, the Prince of Wales and his organization In Kind Direct. She has performed original music for Chancellor Angela Merkel and former Chancellor Helmut Schmidt; numerous US consulates in Europe; Amerika Haus NRW; Steinway & Sons, worldwide; and the NGO International Women’s Forum at the United Nations in Geneva.
“Goldsby has a wicked sense of humor and a keen eye for the absurd. Big hearted, funny, truly eye-opening memoir.” Publisher Weekly Starred Review
