Senior RecitalEric Kang ’09, piano & Richard McDowell ’09, bass-baritone
Eric Kang, a native of Princeton Junction, New Jersey, is a senior music major at Williams College. He feels fortunate to have worked on a number of performances and productions with the music and theatre departments as well as with Cap and Bells, Immediate Theatre, and the Williams Octet. After graduation he plans to wait tables and eat ramen while pursuing songwriting and composition for musical theatre. He currently studies piano with Artist-in-Residence Doris Stevenson, who he thanks wholeheartedly for four years of patience, wisdom, and lessons that always (and happily) run late.
Richard McDowell began singing at age 10 after being dragooned into the middle school choir by his music teacher. He has since learned to sing voluntarily. Richard began his classical studies under G. Alan Wagner of West Chester University, and now studies with Keith Kibler. His performances at Williams include St. John’s Passion with Williamstown Early Music, a concert performance of Schumann’s Dictherliebe, and the title role in Sweeney Todd. A native of Pennsylvania, Richard is currently a senior at Williams majoring in mathematics and Economics
