NEC’s School of Continuing Education Professional Studies Certificate candidate Amy Kao, gave her final recital on Saturday February 22, 2014 in Brown Hall. Amy performed works by Froberger, Handel, Bach and Scarlatti on a 1987 custom built French double-manual harpsichord by Allan Winkler. The harpsichord is based on the work of the Parisian builder Francois Blanchet II and was built here in Boston.
What made this recital even more interesting was that Amy’s entire performance was done without sheet music. Instead, she chose to use a tablet computer with a foot pedal mechanism to turn the pages of the music which had been scanned into the tablet computer.
A special congratulations to Amy on a great performance and we wish her all the best in the next stage of her musical journey!
