Kim’s most recent CD, “Passages,” was nominated for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album in 2020 by ZMR Broadcasters worldwide.
Kim lives in Naselle and trains collies in her own dog training facility on site.
Jennifer Goodenberger is an elegant and lyrical pianist, who plays with integrity and compassion. Jennifer has been performing for over 30 years.
