Joyce will be giving a recital of characterful works composed by masters such as Schumann, Chopin, Debussy and Grieg. Joyce is celebrated as a pianist because she not only amazes with her technical brilliance, but also with her ability to convey intense emotion with personality and flair.

She is also a Grammy nominated recording artists and highly sought after as an adjudicator.
