I performed a vocal recital as part of my final requirements towards my Music Education degree and developed an additional program including research on the works I performed. The program consisted of biographies for composers Haydn, Schumann, Fauré, Obradors, and Beach, additional context on specific songs, and translations of songs not sung in English. I created this program in order to provide more detailed information for audience members who were interested in further enrichment or had particular curiosity for any performed works. This recital was a culmination of my efforts in the vocal department of the School of Music throughout my time at NIU, including practice in my voice lessons with Dr. Orna Arania and with my accompanist, Chang Xu. The final recital was performed along with the distribution of my research on November 6th, 2022, at 7pm in the NIU Recital Hall.
