“Armando’s Rhumba” (Chick Corea) played by high-school senior Dakota Lichauco. This was one of three recordings that were included in her portfolio for applications to universities.
Subsequent to the submissions, she was awarded the Leonard Bernstein Fellowship (Brandeis University), a distinctive and highly selective performance program. The fellowship provides a small number of accomplished musicians the benefits of private lessons, chamber performance opportunities, large ensemble performance opportunities and a substantial scholarship.
Watch her other performances from this session: My Foolish Heart (Clifford Brown) and Humoresque (Mily Balakirev).
Recorded and mixed in Cakewalk by BandLab at the Leitmotif Piano Studio.
