This week the assignment is kind of advertising for my husband. On Thursday, Curtis will be performing in his graduate recital! It is at 7:30pm in Sprague recital hall. He’s playing three numbers which are accompanied by piano. We’d love to see you all there if you can make it! (And I’ll give you a hundred points for it ;)) If you can’t make it you can listen to the live stream, available here: (but that doesn’t count for 100 points)
