Biography

Dr. Jen Bratz brings dedication to the teaching of music, a high level of artistry, and a diverse interest in both solo and collaborative piano to Rocky Mountain College.  She has performed throughout the United States and regularly collaborates with the Yellowstone Chamber Players (yellowstonechamberplayers.org), her colleagues at Rocky Mountain College, and with students. Dr. Bratz' programs often reflect her interest in new music. Noteworthy explorations into this field include a masterclass performance for Ursula Oppens, the Colorado premier of Ned Rorem's "Evidence of Things Not Seen," a monumental song cycle for soprano, alto, tenor, bass, and piano, and lectures on the music of Frederic Rzewski.
