DMA Recital: Cheng Cheng

| New England Conservatory: Keller Room

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.

Cheng Cheng is a collaborative pianist studying with Jonathan Feldman and Cameron Stowe. This is the first recital in fulfillment of their degree.

NEC's Jordan Hall, Williams Hall, and the Keller Room at 30 Gainsborough Street and Pierce Hall at 241 St. Botolph Street are wheelchair accessible. To arrange in advance for access to Brown Hall and Sunday/evening access to the St. Botolph building call (617) 585-1263 (voice only), M–F, 9–5.
