She is the coordinator of CRKC’s Second Sundays at Vinyl Renaissance, a monthly series dedicated to laid-back classical music in a record store setting.  Bridget is also founder and manager of Fourscore, a classical crossover quartet bringing energetic arrangements of pop songs to the piano quartet format. In 2018, she became a founding member of Xiphias Trio, a clarinet, violin, piano trio based in Kansas City along with her partners Erik Hassell and Larkin Sanders.  Bridget taught applied piano at Ottawa University and served as staff accompanist.  She received her master’s degree in piano performance from the UMKC Conservatory of Music and Dance in 2012.  Currently, Bridget resides in Raleigh, North Carolina with her husband, Scott.
