Maria started her first Sunday with us September 21st, 2014.
Russian-born harpsichordist Maria Brodsky holds an MA in Music Theory from Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatory.
In 1998 she relocated to the US, continuing her studies of early music and historic performance at the University of Michigan, where she obtained her MM in harpsichord performance.
Maria performs frequently as a soloist and chamber musician. Currently she lives in San Jose and divides her time between performance and teaching.
She is delighted to become the Music Director of the Congregational Church of Almaden Valley, UCC. Participation in the worship and directing Shalom choir is an ideal opportunity to cultivate what she values most in music: the integration of thinking, playing and singing.
