Displayed here is a sincere account of my musical life. I was fortunate to discover my love of music-making as a young child. I have dedicated my passion, intellect, and intuitions to the arts of piano playing and composition with the hope that my contributions will bring joy to others. It is a privilege to be able to share of myself in this way.
It is a beautiful life when music connects human beings to one another.

Pianist Stacey Rose delights audiences world-wide. As the featured soloist with orchestra, she has collaborated with numerous ensembles in over 10 countries. Included in these are orchestras of Canada, Moscow, Republic of Georgia, Brazil, Argentina, South Africa, Korea, the Dominican Republic, and the U.S. (also Puerto Rico). With a repertoire of varied musical styles ranging from Classical to Broadway, she has performed extensively in the tri-state area, including recitals for many New York senators, governors, and mayors and an international fund-raising event in honor of former President Clinton. She has performed on television and radio, and frequently substitutes in the orchestras of Broadway shows.
After 9/11, Ms. Rose established a fund with the United Way of America, performing “For the Children Concerts” to benefit families of the tragedy.
In addition to concertizing, Ms. Rose focuses much of her time on music composition. To her compositional credit are works for solo piano, piano and voice, and cadenzas for piano concertos. Large-scale works include her first piano concerto (that she performed with the New Haven Symphony and The National Repertory Orchestra) and a musical drama. Recently she completed her first full solo recital program of original compositions. Performances of this program are underway this season (2016) and will culminate with a recital at Weill Recital Hall of Carnegie Hall on June 18, 2017. The program represents her contemporary conceptions of traditional musical forms.
Stacey began her piano studies at age five. In her home state of Colorado and the western states, she won various piano competitions as a child, soon deciding she preferred competing in sports rather than in music. She attended Oberlin College, received a B.A. degree from Stanford University, and a postgraduate diploma in piano performance from New York's pretisgious Mannes School of Music. She has represented Steinway as a Steinway Artist since 1992.
