Abigail LaVecchia graduated from Temple University's Boyer College of Music with a Bachelor's of Music degree in Piano Performance. At Temple University she studied piano with Charles Abramovic and harpsichord with Joyce Lindorff. Under the instruction of these two teachers, she gained varied and frequent performing opportunities for solo and ensemble music in the greater Philadelphia area.  She played in master classes for Menahem Pressler, Jonathon Biss, and Gabriel Kwok. She also performed as a frequent accompanist for many of Boyer's students as well as in chamber music groups of all new music at Temple University.  She has performed as a harpsichordist in chamber music and solo settings as well.

              An avid new music player, she has performed in many concerts for works by student composers at Temple University, and played in the university's Contemporary Ensemble.  In addition, Abigail has been the pianist for the Symphony Orchestra, Wind Symphony, and Wind Ensemble at Temple University.  She has also performed outside the university, including  recent performances with Center City Opera Theater and the Eastern Wind Symphony.  This interest in both chamber and large ensemble music led her to her involvement with the New York State Summer School of the Arts School of Orchestral Studies.  For the past three summers she has been a chamber coach, counselor, and pianist for this four-week program for advanced students in New York State.  She was also a counselor for the Skidmore Jazz Institute in Saratoga Springs, New York.

             Upon graduation, Abigail was the recipient of the Jacobs Music Steinway Award for her pianistic and scholastic achievements at Temple University's Boyer College of Music and Dance.  She was also recognized by Who's Who in American Universities and Colleges in 2012 and was the recipient of Boyer College's 2011 Douty Foundation Scholarship.  Abigail looks forward to continuing her career in music with more studies in performance and gaining more experience in teaching and collaborative piano.
