Great Arts at Eastern this week talks with Pamela Shuler, Kayla Paulk, Stephanie Beinlich

This week on Great Arts at Eastern, Jeff Gentry talks with Pamela Shuler, Kayla Paulk, Stephanie Beinlich about the upcoming Faculty Recital on Monday, September 30th. 


Pamela Shuler whose upcoming Faculty Clarinet Recital states her view of why it is important for music professors to perform recitals: “-One of the things that I love about Eastern is that I don’t think that anyone in the department just sits back and critiques.  I think that we all lead by example.  And in my opinion, you shouldn’t ask a student to do something that you can’t do yourself.  So, it is important to have that culture of modeling for the students.  And it is real fun to make music.”


The theme of the recital is different ways in which the Clarinet can sing and then literally the singing the human voice.  And some of the musical numbers that will take place during this performance will reflect that. 

Kayla Paulk and Stephanie Beinlich join Pamela on stage. 

One  of the songs that they are working on together on a Schubert piece: "Der Hirt auf dem Felsen which is a very famous German Lied." Stephanie states as one of the works that will be covered during Monday's recital.  


Kayla  is a thought after accompanist who has worked with several different artists.  She states that:  "We (Pam and I) started working together prior to this year.  But I really enjoy working with Pam, she is much more organized than I am.  She's very communicative, she's got all of her advanced organizes in place, but I would say that when you find someone that is that organized and methodical you don't always find a lot of artistry, sometimes it is restricted, but that is not the case with Pam.  She is very fluid and very artistic and I feed off of that." 

There is going to be a lot of variety during the show and Pamela states the she really liked Kayla's playing and Stephanie's singing and picked pieces that would be fun to play with together.  Especially picking the pieces of the Schubert and the Copeland.  What was a good surprise was the first Sonetta and how the Clarinet and Piano when they were used in rehearsals.
