If you've been to a student recital before, you probably expect to hear something like a traditional concert by a touring artist.

Recitals by doctoral students are a somewhat different affair. In the course of completing the Doctor of Musical Arts degree at New England Conservatory, performance majors present not just one, but three full-length recitals, for which they also write program notes. Composers present a recital of their chamber music, then complete a large-scale original work. In both cases, it's an opportunity to observe multiple facets of an emerging artist.

This evening pianist Christina Chao, student of Cameron Stowe and John Moriarty presents a recital in partial fulfillment of the Doctor of Musical Arts degree. The program features guests Jean Bernard Cerin, baritone, and Josh Quinn, bass-baritone.

The Program:

Theodore Chanler: Eight Epitaphs
Maurice Ravel: Histoires naturelles
Richard Strauss: Krämerspiegel, op. 66

Date: March 4, 2014 - 8:00:PM
Price: Free
Location: Williams Hall
