IWO (ē’vō) is a Polish born, Chicago based piano composer/performer/teacher. She attended the prestigious Akademia Muzyczna w Krakowie (Academy of Music, Cracow) in Poland where she studied Piano Performance and Music Theory & Composition. After competing in numerous piano competitions she began a career as a concert pianist. Having immigrated to the USA, her musical interests further expanded and she began composing in a more contemporary style sometimes referred to as \“New Age\” or \“Cinema Music\”. While not completely comfortable with either term, she does appreciate the accessibility of the aforementioned music genres, but still keeps one foot solidly grounded in the structure and complex harmonies of the Classical music world. IWO believes that the timeless qualities associated with the Classical greats stem from not only their beautiful melodies, but also their underlying structure and feels that listeners appreciate a well crafted \“song\” that they can listen to now, and over time.
