This past weekend, Baltimore School of Music teachers took the stage for the first ever faculty recital. The sold-out concert was supported by Free Fall Baltimore and gave our music teachers a chance to show that they are amazing performers as well as music teachers.
The concert began with Piano Teachers Belinda Chen and Maria Scott performing a duet by Anton Dvorak from his Slavonic Dances. Ms. Scott then ventured into a new musical universe with a solo performance of Alexander Scriabin’s, Sonata No. 4, Op. 30, followed by Ms. Chen’s performance of Franz Liszt’s, Dante Sonata, based off the famous book Divine Comedy by Dante.
The second half of the concert featured Baltimore School of Music’s Founder & Director James Lowe on guitar with Program Coordinator, Juliana Burdick, singing soprano. The guitar/vocal duo performed Sechs Lieder, or “Six Songs,” by Mauro Giuliani and three of Manuel De Falla’s Siete Canciones Poluares, or Seven Spanish Folksongs.
