Memory Day: Thirteen Years Ago Today

On February 27, 2000, Shac and Kelley had a student recital in an interminable line of student recitals. Using my newly discovered Photoshop skills, I provided them with a set of incredibly pretentious recital posters, including one which just called it "The Recital".

I probably turned pages for accompanist, Jim Bryant, on this recital, as that was my go-to way to get better at reading piano scores and learning not to write block chords with 11 notes in my own piano parts. I also performed anonymously in Intrada by Otto Ketting.

Intrada was one of those weird solo pieces where the composer believes that people want to sit through a trumpet player talking to himself with dissonance for several minutes. Shac "improved" the piece by narrating a poem over the top of Kelley's performance, and then had me perform the last couple bars from the Green Room for an artistic fading-away effect. Quality theatrics!
