At 2:00pm on Saturday, April 2, 2011, Rachel Lin gave her Senior Honors Recital. The
location of the performance was Emerson Concert Hall in the Schwartz Performing Arts Center
at Emory University. She began the recital playing the 1687 Grancino violin donated to the
Emory University Symphony Orchestra by Joel M. Felner. This violin, a generous donation by
Dr. Felner a few years prior, is attached to the Concertmaster Chair of the orchestra, and Rachel
had the privilege of playing it for the 2010-2011 orchestral season. In a strange twist of events,
however, the bridge popped off of the violin in the beginning of her second piece, making it
unplayable, so Rachel borrowed her friend Katie Lee's violin to complete the remainder of the
recital. Her program included the following works: Violin Sonata in G minor - "The Devil's
Trill" by Guiseppe Tartini, Sonata for Unaccompanied Violin in C Major by J.S. Bach, Rondo in
C Major by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Sonata No. 3 in D minor for Violin and Piano by
Johannes Brahms, and Polonaise Brilliante No. 2 in A major by Henrik Wieniawski. She was
accompanied on the piano by Dr. Patricia Dinkins-Matthews, and the recital was approximately
an hour and a half long. Following the recital was a reception in the upper lobby. Rachel
received highest honors for her performance.
