He has given these presentations at music festivals, concert series, medical conferences, and scholarly symposia throughout the world. He has won numerous honors including the Concert Artists Guild Award, the Chopin Competition of the Kosciuszko Foundation, the Liebert Award for Applied Psychoanalysis, and the McGovern Award for the Art and Science of Medicine.
