The Metroland of New York writes that Ms. Lieurance "wowed audiences" and the Main Sunday Telegram notes that "at the end of the concert, Ms. Lieurance had...the audience standing." Known for her innovative performances and her daring programming, Ms. Lieurance brings new music to concert halls around the United States and Europe. Last season, Ms. Lieurance was invited to Switzerland to perform solo piano works of Meinrad Schutter, in a festival celebrating the 100th anniversary of his birth. A guest artist for the Irving S. Gilmore International Keyboard Festival, Ms. Lieurance performed two tours with their Keys to Education Program, bringing avant-garde music to hundreds of schoolchildren in Michigan.

Ms. Lieurance is a founding member of the new music trio Antares Project whose activities this season include performances in Boston and a tour in Germany, where they will premiere two new commissions written for the group. Her collaborative work also includes orchestral performances with the Chamber Orchestra of Boston, the Quincy Bay Chamber Orchestra, the Cambridge Symphony Orchestra, and the Kalistos Chamber Orchestra.

Among the awards that Ms. Lieurance has received are the Emerging Artist Grant from the Gilmore Foundation, the Presser Scholar Award, and the Paloheimo Foundation Award.
