New Resident Wanda Paik Has Impressive Music Background
Regular live music performances are one of the joys of living at The Commons in Lincoln, and many of our residents have impressive musical backgrounds themselves.
New resident Wanda Paik is among that group. The native of Seoul, Korea, graduated from Northwestern University and taught piano for 30 years at Regis College in Weston, MA.
A splendid soloist.
Wanda was also a performer, playing as a piano soloist with the Boston Pops under conductors Arthur Fiedler and Erich Kunzel, in the Boston Classical Orchestra with Harry Ellis Dickson and with the Boston Civic Symphony under Max Hobart.
Wanda performed solo at the National Gallery in Washington, D.C., at American embassies in Brazil and Trinidad, Yonsei University in South Korea and many U.S. colleges and universities.
Her two CDs, “Piano Perennials” and “Romantic Classics,” can be found on Amazon. Individual tracks can also be found on Apple Music and Spotify.
Supporting live music in the region.
We are proud to count Wanda and so many other music lovers as residents of The Commons. Because of their example, we enthusiastically sponsor music-related events for the enjoyment of our residents and so many others.
