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.

Violist Emily Deans studies with Kim Kashkashian. For this D.M.A. recital, Deans is joined by pianists Constantine Finehouse, of the NEC Preparatory School faculty, and fellow D.M.A. student Theresa Leung.
