Congratulations to my piano student, William Baughman!! Will won the undergraduate concerto competition here at Kent State, and we're over the moon with excitement!
Here is an excerpt from the cadenza of the first movement of Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 1 as performed by Will at the competition finals.
Will will be performing this concerto with the Kent State University Orchestra on Sunday, February 27 at 3:00PM in Cartwright Hall Auditorium on the Kent, Ohio campus of KSU. I'm so grateful for this opportunity for him!
I'm also grateful for the opportunity to create some publicity photos this afternoon for Will! These images were made on a Sony Alpha One with 35mm f/1.4 GM and 50mm f/1.2 GM lenses, and the lighting was made with two Godox speedlights and MagMod modifiers.
