LEFT IN AWE as usual after watching Emily's senior oboe recital at Western Illinois University.
I do believe Eddie Van Halen is the Emily Hart of guitar.
Loved the jazz combo at the end. This was a pretty formal affair inside the COFAC recital hall, but she couldn't stop giggling over the thought of playing her oboe on a jazz song.
The piano player on the other songs, Jasmin Arakawa, was amazing too.
A special thanks to Kathi Dooley for coming up to see her former student. There is a reason Quincy High School has one of the best music programs in the state.
One proud papa!
