Open Access Honors Program Thesis

The process of preparing and presenting this thesis recital has been a very educational and eyeopening. There were low points, such as stress over pronunciation and music memorization, frustration over rehearsal coordination, and fatigue from asking so much of myself so often. However, there were also many high points: advancement in my vocal lessons, growth in my vocal technique, further mastery of foreign languages, opportunities to make music with my colleagues, and improved proficiencies in the business aspects of singing (publicity, networking, etc.). Though this was not my first vocal recital, it was certainly the most rewarding; the knowledge and confidence I have gained from this experience will certainly propel me into my upcoming auditions and graduate studies
