I Designed for a Charity Fundraiser!
It’s been a while since I made a life update post, so here it is!
A few weeks ago I did the crazy thing of messaging Tiffany Poon, a concert pianist and YouTuber whom I really admire, on Instagram because I had an idea: I wanted to ask her if she would be interested in using my designs of the Composer Collages on merch totes to raise funds for her charity, Together with Classical.
She responded!!!!!!!!! (I was very thrilled if you haven’t noticed).
Long story short, my designs are now up on the Together with Classical store for a new fundraiser, with all proceeds to the Support Act, Help Musicians UK, MusiCares, and Music Health Alliance (all charities / non-profit organizations related to the music industry).
Classical music and the piano means a lot to me, and so this is very exciting!! I really don’t considered myself an artist, but I’m really grateful to have this opportunity to help make a difference with my designs. Thank you so much!

While we’re at it, I’ll also recommend this performance below by Tiffany Poon of Schumann-Liszt Widmung (Dedication), originally written by Robert Schumann in 1840 in Myrthen, a set of lieder, as a wedding gift to Clara Schumann, and transcribed by Liszt. The piece is marked with a memorable and sweet melody, while still having those technical bravura typical of Liszt. I think Tiffany’s performance is my favorite so far of this piece because of some subtle but unique phrasing.
