Emily Kim
I am a student at Harvey Mudd majoring in Joint Computer Science-Math. I started playing piano at the age of five and had had unbreakable relationship with music ever since. In addition to piano, I play cello and also sing as a soprano. After years of training in classical music, I stopped playing classical music for 6 years but started playing again during my senior year at HMC. I desire to continue my practices in music as I move on with my life after graduation. After college, I will continue to pursue my learning and research by enrolling into a PhD program at Carnegie Mellon University Robotics Institute. I would like to thank my piano instructor Tatiana Thibodeaux, my family, and my friends. They gave me lots of support when I decided to start playing piano again, as well as preparing for this recital.

Ivy Liu
Ivy is a senior at Harvey Mudd College and majors in Joint Computer Science-Math with music concentration. She began her musical training at the age of 4 when she learned to play the piano. Soon after, She picked up the flute and instantly fell in love with it. Ever since, she has been performing with various ensembles, including her school bands and the youth symphony orchestra in China. During her four years at Mudd, Ivy is a member of the Pomona Concert Orchestra and also studies flute with Rachel Rudich at Pomona College. After graduating, she will become a Software Engineer at Facebook.

HMC is deeply grateful for the generous support that created The Ken Stevens ’61 Founding Class Concert Series.
