MiJung Trepanier preformed in the Rhea Miller Recital Hall on Friday, March 15 at 7:30 p.m.

Trepanier is an independent performer, teacher and adjunct professor of music at SVSU.

She has previously taught at Southern Utah University and Alma College. She was also honored as an artist in the Michigan Council Performance Touring Program for 2012 – 2018.

Her performance, titled “A Conversation with God: Series 1,” featured works composed by Franz Schubert.

Trepanier took time between each work to discuss Schubert’s history and his intentions behind the various songs.

The songs were upbeat and comprised of segments from throughout Schubert’s life. She played three different pieces: “Sonata in A major, D. 664,” “Schubert’s Lieder” and “Impromptu, D. 899.”

This was Trepanier’s first series, and she encouraged audience members to give feedback on her performance.

“I liked her song choices,” said Haley Turner, a music education freshman. “They were very lively, and you never knew was going to happen next.”

Trepanier also took time to talk about what the songs meant to her and how she interpreted Schubert’s work.

Students and community members alike attended this free event offered by the music department.

“I wanted to support one of our faculty members,” said Theresa Park, a music education freshman. “I liked the first piece she played because it was so energetic.”
