Natasha Buckman | Getting Better | Graduating Student Recital

Wednesday, May 15, 2024   |   3:00 pm 4:00 pm

Free – $20.00
Longy’s performances are free and open to the public, but please register in advance.

All Longy students present full recitals as part of their education and ongoing evolution as artists. They are charged with thinking critically about what stories they tell, whose voices to amplify, and who’s in the room for their event while also considering how to use performance spaces in innovative ways and how to truly engage audiences and create interactive music experiences.

Natasha Buckman is a student of Hazel Dean Davis.

Does music have to be difficult in order to be meaningful? In a world that tells us that only the best has value, what does it mean to fall short? This recital is a response to my experience of life, of being a musician, and of facing the possibility that I might not get better. I’ve decided that even if this is it, there will be a place for me. I still have meaningful musical experiences to share. This program is designed to be accessible both to the listener and to me as a performer. It is a showcase of the variety of ways music can move an audience, regardless of technical difficulty.
