“I am lucky to have a wide variety of music to perform and I have been extremely fortunate to have studied under a truly wonderful instructor this year, Meghan Merciers, which without her this recital would not have been possible," said Squires. "My time here at Albion has also taught me a great deal about the work ethic and the commitment it takes to become a truly dedicated musician and advocate of the musical arts.”
