Caeli Massey's Freshman Recital
Caeli joined the Studio in September, and has made fantastic progress on the instrument in the ensuing months. It's fair to say that she's the "most-improved" member of the Studio this year. In all areas--sound production, projection, rhythm, phrasing, and general confidence and delivery, her playing is nearly unrecognizable compared to the beginning of last Fall.

She filled Fairchild Chapel with beautiful sound and the audience rewarded her loudly for her success. Here is a short photographic essay from the evening; the program follows.
