Randolph music professor Emily Yap Chua recently showcased her piano skills at one of the most storied performance venues in the world—Carnegie Hall in New York City.
Chua performed two sets of English art song with tenor David Tayloe, including the complete cycle of A Young Man’s Exhortation, composed by Gerald Finzi. With Tayloe and soprano Elizabeth Claxton Castillo, she also performed premieres of art songs by composer John Ratledge.
“Every musician aspires to perform in important and distinguished concert venues,” Chua said. “It was a wonderful opportunity to perform at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, and I am so grateful for the support of the college, the community, and our enthusiastic audience that evening at the recital.”
