Leonard Ranallo's Senior Recital

Leonard Ranallo's Senior Recital

Lenny gave a tremendous performance for his final Oberlin recital. He played in the gorgeous Stull Recital Hall to a capacity crowd. His program was a challenging combination of major solo works (Bach, Martin and Takemitsu) and a concerto, the Villa Lobos, accompanied by one of Oberlin's expert staff accompanists, Yu Sakamoto. 

Lenny played with sensitivity and confidence. He brought his considerable experience and talents to the table and wowed the audience throughout, earning an enthusiastic standing ovation. Congratulations Lenny, and best of luck in your next adventure!!
