Born in New York to a fashion designing mother and a father who served NASA as an electrical engineer, Isabel is an artist whose music has been loved by many. After earning her degree from Cornell University, she pursued musical studies at Mannes School of Music and, afterward, second degree music major studies at Hunter College. Her private piano teachers include Xiayin Wang, celebrated concert pianist, and her vocal teachers include Edel Sanders and Jan Douglas. Isabel is based in Westfield, Massachusetts.
Isabel's talents as a singer and pianist (with the organ and guitar as her secondary instruments) have called her time and again to music venues throughout the Northeast, both solo and with ensembles. For years, Isabel toured extensively in New York City with her own band, performing from her own album of original songs for piano.
Listeners have admired Isabel's vocal range and timbre for musical styles from folk to smooth jazz to classical song. This year, she is happy to join the publicly-performing, classical chamber group Tres Classique, as a vocalist and interpreter of songs including French art songs and more. Tres Classique is financially supported by the Springfield Cultural Council,
Among the long list of venues where she has performed are Columbia University, Cornell University, the Basilica of Saint Patrick's Cathedral, the Westfield Athenaeum and more, drawing fans and praise for her music, full of beauty and soul. Isabel, a member of BMI, is also regularly booked as a singer and pianist for events including weddings, parties, religious services, concerts, corporate events, and serves as a professional music minister for the Archdiocese of Springfield. She also has experience as an accompanist and session musician.
Fun facts about Isabel are that she is a published poet, artist, crafter, and nationally certified piano teacher which offers her the opportunity to share her love of the piano and piano music with her students. Her first chapbook of poems and songs, Heart's Eye, covers over twenty years of nature poetry and personal verse.
