Maria Baptist: Multi-award-winning Pianist, Orchestra-Composer, Music Professor & Meditation devotee
Maria Baptists‘ genuine artistry, splendid virtuosity and charming personality have brought her to the top of Europe’s current jazz scene — she once gave a private piano concert for Michael Jackson, received numerous awards, is touring worldwide, leads her own orchestra and has released eleven CDs as a band leader. She is a university professor for composition & improvisation at Hanns Eisler Berlin. New York City is Maria’s home of heart, Berlin her home-base.
