This recital is in fulfillment of the requirements for the Doctor of Musical Arts degree.
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.
Mina Cho, a candidate of Doctor of Musical Arts in jazz composition and musicology (minor), will present her final DMA recital at Brown Hall of New England Conservatory on Thursday, October 26, 2017, 8:30pm. During the concert Cho will share what she has been working on over the past few years: composition and improvisation based on jazz, Greek, and Korean conceptions.
