Dear Christine,
I was searching for music schools and piano competitions, and came across your website! Looks very impressive! Coincidentaly, I've just met, and played Schubert'sWanderer Fantasy for one of your teachers, Arthur Rowe!!! He's amazing! (If he had not accepted that position at UVic, I suppose I would have met you somehow, because you would have studied with him at the university here, University of Iowa!!) My family is relocating to Columbus, Ohio next year, and I'm thinking of auditioning for the BM program in performance, at Ohio State University. Right now, I'm a senior in highschool. Do you know of any teachers at OSU? Or, can you recomend me good schools? I would go to Victoria, but I think it might be a bit far away, alhough I would enjoy studying with Mr. Rowe! Also, which recording of Glenn Gould's Goldberg do you prefer? I really hope I can meet you someday, and hear you play! Please e-mail me, if you will visit Cedar Rapids, or Columbus! Thank you! Sincerely, Chad

Dear Chad: Thank you for your message! Goldberg...definately 1981!!! I hope you are enjoying the Schubert - isn't it a magnificent work? It is virtuosic, yet evocative, and I congratulate you on undertaking such a big work! I'm sure Mr. Rowe enjoyed your performance. As for your question regarding teachers at OSU, the only person that immediately comes to my mind, is Steven Glaser, from my hearing of his recording with clarinetist Robert Walzel. Its difficult for me to recommend you schools, since you should ideally go for teachers. But, I can certainly recommend you any of my present teachers, Arthur Rowe (UVic), or Jane Coop (UBC) or Robert Hamilton (ASU), the latter whom I have worked with in the past four years, and he is absolutely fantastic, both as a teacher, and a pianist. I'm sure you would enjoy the weather here also, as I have always wanted to escape the cold weather and rain of British Columbia! I wish you all the best for your studies! Right now, I don't have any concerts scheduled in the Iowa/Ohio area, but if I should, it 'll be listed in my concert schedule.

Dear Christine: I have truly enjoyed working with you on the Albright Fantasy and the Chopin Concerto this past week in London with my orchestra. I admire your talent, pianism, & artistry, and wish you many successes in your future as you continue with your wonderful concert career. We are all looking to having you perform with us again in Glasgow, 2003.

Dear Mr. Butterfield,
Thank you so much for your message and kind words... it was quite a rewarding experience for me, and I am looking forward to my concerts with you in Glasgow. Please give my best to your family.. I always wonder how everyone is doing. I hope to be in the London area in December, so perhaps I will see you then!
Best, Christine

Dearest Christine,
I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you once again for your great artistry at the Everett Chamber Music Festival this past weekend. Your interpretation of the Beethoven and Ravel was exquisite, and I have never heard the pieces played so well, with brillance and delicacy. We would like to invite you and your chamber ensemble to perform once again next year, and also for the Montreal festival in 2003? If not, then perhaps, a solo engagement would be wonderful!
Sincerely, T.T.

Dear Thomas,
Thank you so much for your warm words, we had such a fabulous time in Washington! Thank you very much for the concert invitation, and we look forward to seeing you again next season!
Sincerely, Christine
