As requested, here is the recording of my Senior Composition recital.
Overall, the concert went well and I still can not thank the people who had anything to do with making it a success enough. For your enjoyment and so these individuals can be deservedly recognized, please read the descriptions in the videos (on YouTube)and the program acknowledgements posted here:
I would like to take a moment to thank several people that are to blame for my making it this far. First of all, I would like to thank the academy (just kidding!). Thank you Dr. Mr. and Mrs. Rollin and Scott Pfitzinger for teaching me about the craft of composition ,to Dr. Crist and Mr. Olsson for plumbing assistance (aka, your support and instruction on the Trombone) and to Dr. Gage for the privilege of read throughs and discussions about band music. Thank you Mom, Dad, and my “Wicked Step Mother” Peg for listening to my incessant whining these last four years and being there and to Richard for the long talks. Thanks to the friends, too numerous to name here, that I have been fortunate enough to know for your support and guidance and time by playing through my pieces and teaching me what not to do on X- instrument and why. Thank you to the performers of this recital for subjecting themselves to the notes that I mercilessly wrote on the page and for still showing up to perform today, and to Dr. Perkins, Dr. Root, and Dr. Rollin for serving on the Hearing committee for this recital. Thank you to the Darkos for feeding me the last few years, especially Bryan for putting up with my shenanigans and making sure I got where I needed to be, and to Erin Hill and Veronica Williams for feeding the audience. Also, thank you Grandpa for starting me on this crazy path because if it weren’t for those piano lessons, I might not be here. Lastly, thank you audience for coming. Your support is much appreciated and I hope you enjoy the show.
Minimalist Acknowledgements: Thank you everybody!
