"Adriana Teodoro-Dier is without question, one of Denver’s most talented classical pianists. When I first heard her at Dazzle Jazz two years ago, I immediately recognized a person who had a special ability. So much so that I booked her for a Gershwin concert at Dazzle later that year. Knowing that Gershwin’s piano compositions were difficult at best, I had little doubt that Adriana could handle the complex melody structures in his music. After performing two of Gershwin’s popular compositions, the audience gave her a standing ovation, the first I had ever witnessed at Dazzle. Adriana’s willingness to tackle a variety of music forms is very special and her ambition to excel is especially impressive."
