Dual recital in honor of Father’s Day

Dual recital

On Sunday, June 20, 2010, at Mather LifeWays, a sophisticated residential nursing care community located in Evanston, Illinois, Yevgeniya Lepskaya and student Alita Carbone (age 15) performed a dual recital in honor of Father’s Day.

The recital lasted approximately an hour and was greatly enjoyed by the crowd. Alita Carbone began the recital with a J.S.

Yevgeniya Lepskaya’s repertoire concluded the recital. She began with a Chopin Ballade No. 3 in A- Flat Major, Op. 47.

The beautiful Franz Shubert Impromptu No.3 in G- Flat Major, ).9 was next, and the recital was finished with a Johannes Brahms’ Intermezzo No. 2 in A Major, Op. 118.


Student Recitals

Student recitals are held twice in December and twice in June every school year. Participation in the recitals is not mandatory. However, most of our students choose to participate in the recitals because it gives them a chance to show their parents, peers and family friends what they have learned during the school year. It also allows the parents to assess their children’s performance and take pride in their accomplishments. The students prepare for their recitals as if they were professional pianists, violinists, composers, or vocalists.

Each recital is followed by a reception.
