SOU STUDENT CONCERT
The audience was smaller than usual, but none-the-less enthusiastic. Southern Oregon University has been in session only three weeks, but two brave sophomores were willing to share their progress with us.
Anthony Bock, pianist, performed for us last year. He returned to play three very challenging works: Scriabin’s Prelude Op. 11 No. 9 in E major; Schubert’s Sonata in A major 3rd Mov’t; and Chopin’s Scherzo No. 2 in B-flat Minor. He introduced the pieces with the same enthusiasm and enjoyments with which he played them. He is currently in pursuit of a Piano Performance degree at SOU under the instruction of Dr. Alexander Tutunov.
Maddie Easdale, soprano, is new to Mountain Meadows. She is majoring in theatre arts with a minor in musical theatre performance. Accompanied by Anthony, she sang “Blue Skies” from Blues Skies, “Jimmy” from Thoroughly Modern Millie, “She Used to Be Mine” from the musical, Waitress, and “Cheek to Cheek” from Top Hat, She has been singing since she was five years old and her experience was reflected in her confidence and genuine pleasure in performing. Such a lovely, voice and presence!...
