Piano Students Perform Senior Recital
Two Suzuki piano students will hold a senior recital and graduating recital at Weymouth Center for the Fine Arts and Humanities in Southern Pines, Sunday, June 7, at 5 p.m.
Rebecca Deucher, daughter of Robert and Beth Deucher, of Vass, and Brian Hayes, son of Kevin and Susan Hayes, of Whispering Pines, will be performing a joint recital. They are students of Yvonne Haskins, of Aberdeen, who has been teaching them for the past 12 years.
Deucher will be graduating from the Suzuki program, having mastered by memory all seven levels of Suzuki repertoire. She will be performing "Sonata, Alla Turka" by Mozart; "12 Variations of Twinkle," by Mozart; "Le Secret," by Gautier; "Minuet op. 14, No.1," by Paderewski; "Corps de Ballet," by Alesander; "Sonata K. 331, Andante grazioso," by Mozart, and "In Dreams," featured in "The Breaking of the Fellowship."
Deucher is an 11th-grade homeschooler and will continue to study piano and organ for one more year with Haskins.
Hayes will be holding his senior recital and will perform "Sonata K. 330, Allegro moderato," by Mozart; "Prelude from "The Well-Tempered Clavier, Vol. 1," by Bach; "Dance Masquerade," by Brown; "Firefly," by Bilotti, and five of his own original contemporary Christian pieces during which he will also sing.
Hayes is a senior at Union Pines and will be attending Gardner Webb University this fall on a full academic scholarship.
He plans to major in religious studies and minor in music composition.
"It is a great joy to see my students make it to this level, but it is very hard to let go of them when I've seen them every week since they were five years old," says Haskins.
There will be a piano, violin and voice recital at 3 p.m. with students of Yvonne Haskins, Corrie Haskins, Holly Haskins Campbell and Timothy Landry, followed by the senior and graduating recital at 5 p.m.
"The public is invited to attend either or both recitals," says Haskins.
