Throckmorton Theatre, Mill Valley Noon CONCERT: Holly Mead

Holly Mead began playing piano and composing her own songs at the age of seven and never stopped. She holds a BA in jazz studies and has toured internationally, both as a solo artist and with her ensemble. Currently, she composes music for film and games and maintains a teaching studio in the Bay Area. Her compositions have been featured at the San Francisco International Film Festival, the Morris Graves Museum of Art, and as part of Nick Offerman's fundraising campaign for Would Works. She recently published a musical adventure book for beginning pianists called "Rhapsody's Tale". When she isn’t tinkling the ivories, she can be found cooking delicious meals with her friends and hiking in the Oakland hills.

And below is the program for 4/24. Let me know if you would like more info:
