Renée’s latest recording on the Acis label: Bach’s “Clavier-Übung III, The Pedal Settings” will be released at a concert event sponsored by the Eastman School of Music at Christ Church, Rochester on September 24 at 4 PM. The release event will coincide with the 15th anniversary of the Craighead-Saunders organ modeled after the 1776 Casparini organ in Vilnius, Lithuania and featured in the recording.

Renée was nominated by her peers to become a member of the Recording Academy – an American learned academy of musicians, producers, recording engineers and other musical professionals famous for its Grammy Awards recognizing worldwide achievement in music. Renée was confirmed a member of the Recording Academy’s Class of 2023 in July.

Renée was interviewed on The New Classical FM radio program in Toronto, Ontario, Canada in anticipation of her recital at Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church on July 22. This concert was the last full-length recital of the international ORGANIX series in Toronto, passionately curated by Gordon Mansell throughout its admirable 18-year existence. Renée had last appeared on the series in 2012. | listen
