Margret Elson's musical background includes ten years as a piano scholarship student at Juilliard School of Music, Preparatory Division. At Juilliard she studied with Edgar Roberts, a protégée of Roslyn Tureck, who was then one of the major Bach interpreters, helping bring Bach back into the mainstream of the classical repertoire. Margret continued studies in Paris, and in the San Francisco Bay Area with master teachers Alexander Libermann and Marjorie Petray, and early music specialist Laurette Goldberg.

For twenty five years Margret and her four-hand piano partner Elizabeth Swarthout concertized throughout California and on the east coast. In 1993 they received an NEA grant to make a CD, "20th Century American 4-Hand Piano Music" on the Laurel label.  Amongst many venues, their national tour took them to Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.

Margret performs extensively in the Bay Area, and is known for her interpretations of Bach and Chopin.  She served as Music Director for the Junior Bach Festival Association in Berkeley and frequently adjudicates competitions and serves on the Board of Directors for the Young People's Symphony Orchestra, this nation's second oldest youth orchestra.

In addition to performing, Elson has been teaching and coaching musicians for over 40 years, both in her Oakland studio and in workshops across the country, Oslo and London. In 1983 she founded and directed The Center of Artistic Counseling in Oakland, CA. She is a licensed psychotherapist specializing in performing and artistic issues, and is author of  the book Passionate Practice: The Musician's Guide to Learning, Memorizing and Performing, on the reading list in many music departments. In it Elson delineates concrete steps for integrating mental and physical ease into performance practice. Her second book, now in progress, is The Couch and the Piano, in which Elson describes the interrelation between her professions as musician and therapist.

This concert is a benefit for the Sierra Club North Olympic Group.  For more information, contact Darlene Schanfald, darlenes@olympus.net
