KC will host a Collaboration Recital at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 30, in Van Cliburn Auditorium. The piano-vocal recital will feature a mother-daughter duo–Melanie Sullivan, music instructor, and Kelsie Sullivan, former KC student–playing music from Bach, Barber, Debussy, Rossini, Schubert, Strauss and more.
“The purpose of the concert is two-fold,” Melanie said. “As faculty, we often participate in recitals to show our students that we understand and do everything we expect them to do: we practice, memorize and perform.”
Kelsie has been at Brigham Young University – Idaho working on a Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance and seeking a master’s degree in piano collaboration.
“I don’t see this concert as a means to show off or ‘toot my horn’ for lack of a better phrase, but to show other students that opportunities continually surround us and we must make the most of them,” Kelsie said.
The recital is free and open to the public.
