Every year, the Olathe Music Teachers Association (OMTA) hosts an Honors Recital showcasing some of Olathe’s finest student musicians. Students must be nominated by their teacher for this honor. Two outstanding students from Leslie’s Music Studio were nominated this year to perform in the 2016 OMTA Honors Recital.
Mahathi, a freshman at Olathe North High School, played The Dreamcatcher by Jennifer Linn. Nathan, a sophomore at Olathe East High School, played Scarlatti’s Sonata in A Major K. 113, Allegro. Both students received superior ratings on these pieces at the MAMA Festival this year. Nathan and Mahathi each received a medal in recognition of their achievements at the Honors Recital.
The Honors Recital took place on November 12th at 5:00 PM at Metropolitan Strings Academy near 119th and Quivira in Overland Park.
