About the Performer
Monica Jakuc (pronounced Ya-kutch) has won acclaim on three continents for her solo and chamber music recitals with a repertoire that spans three centuries. Her performance of the Bach "Goldberg" Variations at Merkin Hall was hailed by the New York Times as "an auspicious debut." New York audiences first heard her perform in 1980 at Alice Tully Hall in "A Program of Twentieth-Century Music for Two Pianos" with Kenneth Fearn.
Ms. Jakuc received her Bachelor's and Master's degrees from the Juilliard School where she studied with James Friskin and Beveridge Webster. She later worked with Leon Fleisher at the Peabody Conservatory and with Russell Sherman in Boston. She is Professor of Music at Smith College where she has taught since 1969.
