“Once the show gets here, we are just excited to perform. We worked really hard on these pieces,” said sophomore flutist Julie Gates. The recital was in the entry foyer of the Frank House, with three rooms full of spectators present.

The setting was just right. With lights and Christmas trees in every corner, the Frank House was ready to hold the semi annual flute Studio Class Recital for students at UNK.  The building was filled with anticipating friends and family as the students were introduced for the mixture of solos and duets totaling 17 performances by 12 students.  Ranging from traditional Christmas carols to Bach, there was something for all ages.    

Julie Gates, a sophomore art education major from McCook said, “The concert is put on once a semester for a class that most music majors and minors must take.  By the time the show nears, we have practiced so much that we are excited to perform.”  

Gates performed both a solo and a duet during the recital, playing both with grace and ease.  

“I play because I love to do it.  I think that learning this music and being able to perform it will benefit me for the rest of my life.”

Gates plans on going on to pursue her degree in art education, but will cherish her flute talents for years to come.

“We have an ensemble that we will be performing next semester, which I am really looking forward to. I hope that performance goes as well as ours did today,” Gates said.
