A senior recital performance was given as a culmination of my musical studies through my undergraduate program. Many of the research hours arc in the form of practice hours dedicated to the performance. This written portion of the thesis documents research about selected literature and performance implications.

The methodology includes extensive research about the music that is included in the clarinet recital, as well as discussion about repertoire selection and interpretation. The historical aspects of the pieces and composers are other important factors that define the practice and performance of the pieces.
