On Mother’s Day, 2017, my cellist and I performed a collaborative recital for the Pennsylvania Federation of Music Clubs Harmonia Association. As an encore, we presented Dvořák’s “Songs My Mother Taught Me” in honor of our own mothers and the mothers in the audience who have sacrificed so much for others. We were also thrilled to talk to audience members following the concert concerning the pieces and composers as well as the direction of the music industry. A special thank you goes to officers Katherine Hoopes and Patricia Walter for making this event possible. We were also honored to perform in the stunning St. Luke’s Episcopal Church Sanctuary.
What a delight it is to know that classical music is in good hands (pun intended) with the next generation. The musicality, technique, and articulation from both of you was exceptional. But then, that’s why you are students at Eastman. Congratulations on a fine evening, and a huge THANK YOU for the experience.” – Patricia Walter, Recording Secretary
