Her work has been presented in both traditional and experimental settings in New York, Germany, Austria and all the major performance venues and museums in Washington, DC.

She is on the faculty at George Washington University and has previously been a faculty member at George Mason University and the Levine School of Music. Se is a graduate of Harvard, Juilliard and the University of Maryland, where she earned her doctorate in composition.

Review:
“Krash has important things to say in her own unique compositional voice, and her pia-nistic gifts, along with the musical talents of the other performers in this well-recorded CD, bring her ideas off convincingly. This arresting and original music ought to be ex-plored by any reader with an interest in the music of our era.” (Fanfare)
