From the embracing of identity as defined by the individual, the transformation of deeply personal trauma sites to the discovery of transcendent well-being.

Critically-acclaimed classical musician and educator Berginald Rash has lived all over the United States and Europe, achieving despite love and loss and discovering his potential. With integrity, wisdom, and temerity as guiding forces he has experienced the joys of international achievement and the trepidation of self-doubt, holding fast to the lessons he’s learned along the way and looking forward to the journey and knowledge ahead.
