Ms. Black's principal teachers have included Karen Buranskas, Laurien Laufman, and Hans Jorgen Jensen. She has also studied orchestral repertoire with John Pegis of the Chicago Symphony and coached with Bryan Dumm of the Cleveland Orchestra.
She is a founding member of The Savane Trio, a piano trio. They toured Japan twice, receiving critical acclaim in Japan's Ongakugendai and Ongaku no tomo (italics) music magazines. The trio "wept of grief and sang for passion...they are truly extraordinary," wrote Yoshiko Honobe in September 1997. The Savane Trio was a participant in Chamber Music America's Rural Residency during the 1998-99 school year as artists-in-residence in Safford, Arizona, enhancing the musical life of the community. They have also performed all over the United States.
Ms. Black has been active as a solo, orchestral, and chamber musician in Northeast Ohio and Northwest Pennsylvania. She has been a member of the Erie Philharmonic and the Erie Chamber Orchestra and has played concerti with both ensembles. She has performed many concerts with the Edinboro Chamber Players in Erie, Edinboro, and on WQLN. As a duo with guitarist Erik Mann she has performed in The Cleveland Clinic, the Holden Arboretum, with Classical Revolution, and in the Bratenahl Chamber Music Series. Most recently, in the summer of 2012 Ms. Black participated in the Classical Music Festival in Eisenstadt, Austria, and had the privilege of performing works by Haydn and Beethoven in the palaces and churches in which they were premiered, most notably Haydn's Symphony No. 45 in the Esterhazy Palace at Ferto, Hungary, with Prince Anton Esterhazy II in attendance.
