Last Saturday, two PCC students walked into a concert hall full of people and sat down in front of a nine-foot-long piano to perform their first solo piano concerts.
PCC’s present generation of pianists saw their hard work pay off during the sold out “Sun and Shadows: Music of Lightness and Darkness” concert this past Saturday evening in the Westerbeck Recital Hall.
Students tickled the ivories in the Westerbeck Recital Hall for the production of “Tempus Fugit,” Latin for “Time Flies,” on Saturday April, 26
While the performances were not the best ever heard in Harbeson Hall over the last year, people left the “Vive le France!” piano ensemble and accompanying recital with pep in their steps.
While sitting in the full audience in Harbeson Hall, one could wonder why so many people would come to listen to PCCs 12th annual piano honors recital, which had some mixed talent.
Phillip Young, instructor and director of the Schumannâ€™s Ghosts concert, began the Saturday night show in Harbeson Hall with a slow haunting piano piece that filled the room with shadowy sounds. It was Schumannâ€™s last piece, Young told the audience, written just before an attempted suicide and two years in an asylum.
