In December 2006, I graduated from Concordia University in Portland, Oregon. I received a Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) degree. As part of my senior year, I decided to take voice lessons for senior credit. My teacher was Konstantin Kvach. He was magnificent.
He brought out a lot in me that I only barely suspected I had. For my senior recital, I performed “Libera Me” from Faure’s Requiem. The audience was made up of students, their families, and the music faculty from Concordia University. I got a “whoop” from the audience fo my performance. I enjoyed doing it immensely.
See my recital below. Listen for the “whoop” at the end.
