Toews' senior recital is March 13
Sharon Toews, a music education major at Tabor College, will preform her senior piano recital at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 13, in the Chapel-Auditorium located in the H.W. Lohrenz Building on the Tabor campus.
The recital will include works by Bach, Mozart, Chopin and Poulenc. Out of the four composers, Toews said she enjoys Poulenc the most.
"Unlike Bach, Mozart, and Chopin, the piano works of Poulenc are largely unfamiliar," Toews said. "He has a very unique but beautiful style that I have really enjoyed playing."
In addition to her music education major, concentrating in piano pedagogy, Toews is also majoring in biblical and religious studies.
After graduation, Toews looks forward to using her music training in many ways. She plans to teach private piano lessons and play for worship services. She also plans to go to Indonesia, where she will likely teach music at a Christian high school.
