Tonight at 7:30 pm, pianist Yu-Lien The performs works of J.S. Bach, Carter Pann, and Robert Schumann in a solo recital that marks her return to the Western Michigan University School of Music, this time as a newly-appointed professor. 

Dr. The talked to Cara Lieurance about her years as a WMU graduate student and resident artist before she went on to earn her doctorate at Michigan State and later moved to Ohio, before returning to Kalamazoo in her new position. Her work as a pianist balances recitals, collaborating as an accompanist, teaching, and practicing - and she wouldn't want to give any of it up.
