In accordance with the BM in Music Education degree, Hattie will be performing her senior recital on 11/13/2021. This recital is centered around the Victorian language of flowers, which regards each flower as having a distinct meaning. Each set of works in this recital is named after a flower, chosen for the themes and messages found within the pieces. The Magnolia Set contains works by George Frideric Handel (1685-1759) which, like the magnolia flower, represent nobility and a love of nature. Works by Claude Debussy (1862-1918) and Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924) in The Sweet Pea Set depict blissful pleasures. The third set, The Hydrangea Set , contains excerpts from an Edward Elgar (1857-1934) song cycle that represent comfort and a gratitude for being understood. The Marigold Set , comprised of works by Christoph W. Gluck (1714-1787) and Robert Franz (1815-1892), depicts two forms of grief and jealousy. The final set, The Honeysuckle Set , features works by Franz Schubert (1797-1828) and Carl Bohm (1844-1920) that tell of bonds of great love. This event is free and open to the public.
