With performances described as “musically evocative” and a skill at engaging audiences in the musical dialogue, Dr. Katelyn Bouska is a frequent solo and collaborative musician. Her unique programming combining rarely-heard Czech and American music with music being written specifically for her by rising composers has found an audience throughout America and on the international concert stage.

     With her ability to perform a broad range of repertoire ranging from early music to the most contemporary, she is at ease on clavichord, harpsichord, fortepiano and modern piano. On faculty at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, her passion for informed and personal musical expression extends beyond her piano studio into conducting graduate seminars on performance practice, continuo and period repertoire, and classes exploring theory and harmony as a tool to unlock the grammar of music.  

     In addition to her D.M.A. in Piano Performance from Temple University, she also holds degrees in early keyboard performance as well as collaborative piano. Committed to re-capturing the imagination of audience members, Katelyn is frequently combining innovative programming with unique artistic partnerships as well as active collaboration with emerging professional composers to communicate their music to wider audiences. With her background as performer, teacher and scholar she is often sought after for multi-disciplinary collaborations with audiences as varied as cultural centers and corporate institutions.
