woman play!”

“Dr. Meloan carries the ability to couple precision with emotion.   There was never a moment when one felt detached from her interpretation of any of the pieces.  Part of Meloan’s charm is her ability to draw in listeners to be part of each piece she played, never once excluding listeners from her passion.”
