Pallotti held its sixth annual Chamber Music Recital on Sunday, March 3. The goal is to present the hard work from the students in the Performing Arts department. Friends, family, and faculty were present to support the students who were playing solo pieces and/or group pieces.
Junior Madison Whately played the flute and kicked off the recital with a beautiful piece called The Swiss Shepherd by Pietro Morlacchi.
“It’s a fun experience for me to showcase my solo piece,” Whatley said after the event. A member of the Honors Wind Ensemble, she enjoys performing and has been for the last seven years.
“Playing in front of my peers can be nerve-wracking at times, but in front of my family isn’t that bad.” She intends on continuing her passion in college but will first perform again at March 22’s Coffeehouse event.
Many other students performed. Seniors Serlena Flowers and Andrew Kern, Junior Nate Olsen, Freshman Ariel Wise, and many others showed off their talents at the recital.
At the end of the recital, Mr. Saunders Allen and Mr. Niko Iampieri were very pleased with the performances. They love doing the recital every year and every year it gets better and better.
