Fanfare Magazine has described Pegoraro as “a multifaceted artist who eagerly searches for passion and musical inspiration in her life and her performances.” She is known for her innovative programming and especially for performances of South American music, including the tangos of Astor Piazzola.
Pegoraro will also be teaching a masterclass to TU piano students.
