Oberlin Guitar Studio Fall Recital

Oberlin Guitar Studio Fall Recital

In lieu of juries this week, we had a studio recital instead, a tradition I really like. It's always better to watch students perform in a real concert venue (instead of a classroom) and play for a real audience (instead of just me). We used Fairchild Chapel this time, the room on campus that, while light is a bit low, produces the most sumptuous sound. Only the students who had not played recitals were involved. Here is a quick recap, with the program reproduced below:
