A recital and workshop by Garnet Ungar, from University of Evansville, was hosted by the Wabash Valley Music Teachers Association (WVMTA) February 7-8. His appearance was made possible by a local association programming grant from IMTA and with the cooperation of Indiana State University (ISU) in providing recital and workshop space.
Garnet’s recital and workshop were well attended by members of both WVMTA, ISU, and the Terre Haute community. His recital featured music of the 19th century – Chopin and his contemporaries. The workshop “Practicing Catalysts” included ISU students and pre-college students of WVMTA members in a lecture/master class format. Dr. Ungar, a gifted performer and teacher, engaged and inspired his audience. It was an outstanding event and fulfilled the purpose of IMTA grants, to support the educational and professional development of teachers and to support the promotion of music in the immediate community.
