Four of our students participated in the Musical Artistry Program adjudications this year. I was proud of each and every one of them! Thank you, Audrey, Karis, Aubren, and Mary Boyde for all your hard work!
Our adjudicator, Dr Debra Bakland, was formerly professor of piano at Burman University in Canada and Walla Walla University. She is a distinguished piano performer and pedagogue in the northwest. She praised all our pianists and chose Aubren to play her Bach Two-Part Invention in A minor for the honors recital. Mary Boyde is the alternate recitalist for her rendition of Khachaturian’s “The Horseman.” Congratulations, Aubren and Mary Boyde!
Dr Bakland also gave both Audrey and Karis Honorable Mentions. Congratulations! Good job everyone!!
