Rebecca Klein's Junior Recital

Rebecca Klein's Junior Recital

Rebecca Klein played her junior recital last night to a capacity crowd in Oberlins acoustically perfect Kulas Recital Hall. She attracted a capacity crowd of enthusiastic listeners who responded with a deafening cascade of hoots and hollers and a standing ovation. Her mostly standard program (below) was played with poise and assurance. It was a terrific evening for all. (And many thanks to her parents for an excellent reception spread).
