Theresa Bogard is an active performer combining varied interests in historical performance practice, contemporary music, chamber music and the music of women composers. She studied piano at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music in Australia, the University of Colorado at Boulder, and the Eastman School of Music. In 1988, she received a Fulbright grant to study fortepiano with Stanley Hoogland at the Royal Conservatory of the Hague in The Netherlands, and was a top-prize winner in the International Mozart Fortepiano Competition in Bruges, Belgium the following year.
Theresa has presented programs of solo and chamber music in several cities in the United States, Mexico, New Zealand, Australia, Austria, Bolivia, Korea, Indonesia, China, and Brazil and is also featured on a compact disc recording of piano works by Louise Talma. As a collaborative pianist she can be heard on two recordings for saxophone and piano with saxophonist Scott Turpen on the Albany label and on a recently released CD of music by Hummel with Red Cedar Chamber Music on the Fleur de son Classics label. In June 2000 she was one of ten international adjudicators for the First Governor's International Piano Competition in Saratov, Russia, and she has adjudicated numerous regional and national competitions in the US.
Well known as a teacher, Bogard's students have distinguished themselves in several national and international competitions. Since 1996, Dr. Bogard has added traditional Balinese gamelan music to her special interests and has studied gender wayang in Bali, Indonesia.
