Baby Got Bach's Artistic Director and founder Orli Shaham leads a dual life as both internationally renowned pianist and parent of young children. A consummate musician recognized for her grace, subtlety and brilliance, Ms. Shaham has established an impressive international reputation as one of today’s most gifted pianists. Hailed by critics on four continents, Ms. Shaham is in demand for her prodigious skills and admired for her interpretations of both standard and modern repertoire. The New York Times called her a "brilliant pianist," and London's Guardian said Ms. Shaham's playing at the Proms was "perfection."
Inspired by her own children’s experience with music, Orli Shaham founded Baby Got Bach in 2010, creating an interactive concert series geared toward children age 3 to 6. The concert programs provide hands-on activities with musical instruments, concepts and concert performances that promote good listening skills, and feature chamber music performances by professional musicians with Ms. Shaham as host and pianist.
