LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) ⎯ EOU alumna Michelle Mielke will perform a solo piano recital Friday, Oct. 19 at 7:30 p.m. in Groth Recital Hall in Loso Hall, Room 126. Admission is free.
Mielke graduated from EOU in 1995 and is currently a faculty member at Washington State University’s School of Music. She has 20 years of experience teaching piano. Her recital is aptly titled “A Piano Teacher’s Progress” and is designed with students and families in mind.
Many appealing and recognizable works from the piano repertoire are on the program including Debussy’s “Clair de Lune,” Chopin’s “Berceuse,” Scott Joplin’s “Maple Leaf Rag,” and George Gershwin’s “Three Preludes,” in addition to well-known patriotic tunes hidden within lesser-known works.
Mielke will also share stories and insights from her teaching career and guide the audience through what should be a light-hearted program, suitable for music lovers of any age.
