Kathleen Tagg is a South African pianist, composer and producer who has lived in New York since 2001. A 2014 South African Music Awards nominee for best classical album, she has performed on four continents with a host of leading musicians, and cofounded the New York group SongFusion. Her numerous Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center performances have received high acclaim, but she is equally at home in experimental venues or theatre. Her performances and numerous recordings range from classical to world music, musical theatre to her own music mixing improvisation with fully realized scores. She has premièred countless works and holds the Helen Cohn Award as outstanding doctoral graduate of the Manhattan School of Music, as well as degrees from Mannes College and the University of Cape Town. Her recordings and arrangements have been featured in film and television, and her musical, Erika’s Wall, co-written with Sophie Jaff, was produced by The Music Theater Company of Chicago.
