Pianist Kathryn Woodard curates and performs programs that explore cross-cultural exchange in music. Her international performances have taken her to China, Korea, Croatia, Germany, Turkey, Kyrgyzstan and most recently Thailand where she was the first to perform the music of Turkish composer Adnan Saygun in that country. In 2001 she was designated an American Cultural Specialist by the U.S. Department of State. In the U.S. she has performed at such notable venues as Carnegie Hall, the Freer Gallery at the Smithsonian Institution, the Museum of Fine Arts Houston, the Detroit Institute of Art, and the Dallas Museum of Art.

Body Mapping is an integral part of Woodard’s studio teaching, and she regularly gives workshops based on the course “What Every Musician…” as well as on her own research of Body Mapping.

“. . . both a formidable technician and a sensitive artist.”
