A Note from Robin
Autumn has offered a grab bag of unexpected delights. I just returned from Geneva, Switzerland, where I had the great honor of performing for over 700 women at the United Nations NGO Beijing+20 CSW Forum—a critical conference on human rights for women and girls. My daughter, Julia, and I were commissioned to write the conference theme song, “Maybe It’s You.” We performed it together at the closing ceremony. It was such a surprise to land right smack in the center of such a meaningful event. In October I found myself in Oslo, performing my “Piano Girl” program for a benefit concert sponsored by AWC Oslo and Steinway.
Coming soon: my annual Concert in Candlelight at Schlosshotel Lerbach on December 14th. Eight years in a row for this event—I feel like the luckiest musician in the world.
