My contribution to the 43rd Honors Recital for the School of Music at the University of Southern Maine. I’m playing the first movement of the great Mauro Giuliani’s Sonata in C, Op. 15. In order to win a performance slot for this recital I had to perform in front of an anonymous group of 3 professional concert musicians who were chosen as judges. The competitions were steep this semester and everyone who auditioned was immensely talented. I feel very humbled and honored to have been chosen to be one of the lucky performers for this event.
This was the first ever online honors recital. Because of the continuation of the pandemic they were forced to have us record it ourselves or on the campus if we were still enrolled. I actually graduated just slightly before recording this performance. The original performance was meant to happen live in either April or May if I remember correctly.
