Reverberations : A musical exploration of my roots : an honors thesis (HONRS 499)
The final goal of this project is the performance of an hour-long voice recital. The recital includes short lecture vignettes describing my family members, telling stories about them, and relaying their musical tastes to the audience. Each grouping of three songs (all the same genre) is dedicated to a specific family member that finds that genre (i.e. spiritual, jazz, folk, musical theater) particularly meaningful or enjoyable. This project allows me to improve my own performance abilities while gaining insight into my family's musical backgrounds and experiences.
