Lipscomb University School of Music held their first Friday concert in Beaman library last week, with performances from the piano, cello, and violoncello performance majors.
Bethany Churino, the mother of classical piano major Journey Thouin, traveled to Lipscomb University to watch her son play. “It’s amazing. I can’t believe it, as a mother, to watch your child play like that,” she smiled. “It is obviously a gift that I am thankful for. Just to know that he is doing something that he loves and is passionate about and that it makes him happy, I love to see.”
Another piano performance major, Justin Alcorn, who also performed at the concert, expressed his passion for his studies saying, “Music is very much an emotional thing. My teacher told me musicians are their own therapists. They get to get their feelings out in ways that other people don’t have the opportunity to. That’s what I love about music.”
The school will be holding events to showcase student talent throughout the semester. The next concert will be held Friday, March 5th in the Beaman library for those who want to show their support. Attendance will be limited to 25 people.
