February Solo Recital

Last night I presented a recital at Bethel University, in McKenzie Tennessee. Being the first solo recital I have given in several years, I was quite pleased with how it turned out. I have posted some videos from my performance on this site under the Audio & Video Clips section of About Me.

The performance space at Bethel makes for a challenging experience as a soloist. Turner Recital Hall is still basically a multipurpose room with no acoustical treatment. In addition, there is no place for a performer to retire to during works (especially nice for a brass player to get the instrument off of the face for a moment). Basically I played the recital top to bottom with just enough lead time between works for instrument changes and other odds & ends (like placing a piece of wood on the floor to tap on during Elegy for Mippy II instead of the carpet!).

I would like to thank all of the students, faculty, and community members who attended last night. I greatly appreciate your support!
