Concert Report #1
On Tuesday, March 22nd, I attended a Choral Artists Recital at the Moores School of Music at the University of Houston. The recital was given as partial fulfillment of the requirements for the Doctor of Musical Arts degree for conductors, Kevin M. Klotz and Paulo Gomes. The recital was split in two parts.

The tempo was fast paced and seemed more folk inspired. The choir seemed to really enjoy singing it and it showed in their enthusiasm with the words. I also really enjoyed Ave Maria and the Finale from The Gondoliers. They both incorporated the piano and it was so beautiful and soothing. The Finale from The Gondoliers featured a four-hand piano and I had never...
