My honors thesis consists of program notes for my senior recital. I performed the following pieces: Sonata in A Minor, Wq 132 (Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach); Suite de Trois Marceaux, Op. 116 (Benjamin Godard); Rafflesia: Colossal Flower of the Rairiforest (Benjamin Boone); Sonata Latino (Mike Mower); and Scars and Scrapes Forever! (Kenneth Laufer, arranged by Steve Grugin). The program notes include composer biographies, information on each piece, and post-recital reflections. A copy of my program, which includes abridged program notes, is also included.
