"Those who invest in the arts and the future of people working in the arts are as much a part of its existence as those who are working, teaching, and performing. I am completely committed to doing the best I can to develop as a pianist and teacher, and in turn to be able to contribute what I can to the community and to those around me. Your help is a huge factor in my being able to do so. So it is, from the heart, greatly appreciated."
—Joan, Berneking Fellow
