University of Rochester
Pianist Dr. Alison d’Amato is a dynamic and versatile musician, committed to performing and teaching in the full spectrum of collaborative musical genres. A valued member of several pioneering organizations, she is Artistic Co-Director of Florestan Recital Project (www.florestanproject.org) and co-founder of the Vancouver International Song Institute (VISI, www.songinstitute.ca). Among her current initiatives is the Academy for Collaborative Performance, a new summer program with Florestan Recital Project that explores interdisciplinary collaborations and new approaches to the performer-audience relationship. In all these activities, Alison is dedicated to energizing the relationships and communication inherent in music.
As both a pianist and teacher, Alison has developed several projects that explore interdisciplinary collaborations among artists, including projects with musicologists, composers, writers, and dancers. In 2011, she co-created the Art Song Lab, a partnership between VISI and the Canadian Music Centre which presents new works in collaboration with composers, poets, and audiences. From 2007-2010 she coordinated Florestan Recital Project’s position of Musical-Artists-in-Residence at Dickinson College, which included a wide variety of concerts and classroom activities that engaged the entire college community in the richness of song repertoire. In 2011, she was part of a collaboration between Florestan and Maine State Ballet, presenting “The Poet’s Love,” a highly-acclaimed original presentation of Schumann’s Dichterliebe with choreography.
