Maria Donohue

Glasgow

Maria Donohue began playing the piano at 3 in Brooklyn, New York. She has performed numerous concerts at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Centre and the Brooklyn College Of Music. She has previously studied at Fiorello H. Laguardia Highschool in Manhattan famous for its representation in the Fame movies. She is now in her 4rd year at the Royal Conservatoire Of Scotland. Previous teachers include, Graeme McNaught, and Diane Kirkpatrick. She currently studies under Heather Slade-Lipkin. She has received distinctions in the NYSSMA music exams as well as graduating with a music diploma endorsed by the ex mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg. She is a juxtaposition of polar opposites; a young woman with petite hands dominating full ranges on the piano with vigour, intensity and robust sound. Maria's performance is always an excitement to watch. She believes that Classical music has been a world kept only for the wealthy, and well educated. She is a firm believer in the universal language of music and its connecting powers that cross all cultural boundaries. She strives to ever expand her audiences and open up new opportunities for the classical music in the modern world.
