Student Recitals


Autumn 2017 Recital

Date:  Saturday, November 18, 2:00-5:00 p.m. at Jack Straw Cultural Productions located at 4261 Roosevelt Way NE, Seattle. There will be a small charge per performer (estimated at $5).   

As always, families of performers who have participated before are asked to volunteer to arrive early to help set up, and/or stay late to help clean up, and/or bring food or drink or cups or napkins for the reception party in the lobby after the performance. 



Performance Classes for Student Recital


To my students:

As always, performing in a recital means that you agree to attend a 30-minute Performance Class held during the week leading up to the recital. All Performance Classes are held at my house.  Since space is limited, I often need to limit attendance to students, parents of first- time performers, and parents of children 7 years of age or younger. In addition, beginning three weeks before a recital, students should try to arrive 5 minutes early to their lessons and plan on staying 5 minutes late so as to practice performing for the students before and after them. 

You may choose from among several rehearsals for the November 18 recital (all rehearsals will be held at my house).



Past Recital Programs




At the fall 2010 recital, Adrianna Hulscher, violinist with Seattle Symphony, was our special guest star. She and I performed local composer William Bolcom's most popular work, The Graceful Ghost. Originally he had written it as a solo piano piece, dedicated to his father, but he later rewrote it as a duet for violin and piano as a wedding present for his friend and violinist Sergiu Luca and his wife who was a pianist. My college friend, Yaron David, gave a sold-out performance in Tel-Aviv, at which I was present in the summer of 2011, in tribute to his recently deceased violin teacher, Mr. Luca. Mr. Luca had given Yaron the original score for the duet, and Yaron and his pianist, Nava Wagner, gave the Israeli premiere of this work. I knew it as a piano solo, but loved it even more as a duet with violin. So I was delighted to be able to perform it with violinist Adrianna Hulscher, at the Mirabella Retirement Home in the Denny Regrade Neighborhood in a concert given under the auspices of Ladies Musical Club which includes The Graceful Ghost, plus music by Antonin Dvorak, and Arvo Part, as well as the US premiere of Alfred Tokayer's as-yet unpublished violin/piano duet, Priere sans paroles. (By the way, Adrianna also teaches violin in my neighborhood.)
