Recital Winners

Congratulations to all 17 performers and their teachers whose hard work made this recital so special. 
You all did a fine job, and I know it was a difficult job to select just one winner in each category.
Thanks also to Makito Otsuka,  student of Jan Bis and a past recital winner, 
who entertained us with an astounding program of his college audition pieces.  Bravo!!!
