Simonida Spasojevic, Collaborative Pianist

Simonida Spasojevic (she/her, they/them) has trained in classical piano since they were five, and discovered early that making music with other people is some of the greatest fun a person can have. They’ve been lucky enough to work with musicians from all kinds of musical backgrounds, from classical to contemporary, Broadway scores to pop songs. 

As well as accompanying The A Cappella Singers, they are the accompanist at St. Matthew’s Church, Acton, tutor of children in piano, and accompanist for auditions at Clark University. They have played in many bands, chamber ensembles, and orchestras for the sheer enjoyment of it. They’re always on the lookout for opportunities to make music with others, and hope to consider supporting and learning from other music lovers in the future.
