On Tuesday, Jan. 26, at the Recital Hall Moody Music Building, artist and composer Olivia Block performed. The event lasted from 7:30 to 9 p.m. and was free and open to the public as part of the Sonic Frontiers concert series throughout West Alabama. The crowd was filled with diverse faces that were all intrigued with her performance. The night began with announcements and thanks to sponsors. Block then sat down and began. She used several other instruments and props to transform the typical sound of the piano, making it sound much darker than usual. 

Hannah Edmunds, a freshman student at The University of Alabama said, “The performance given was unlike any I have ever witnessed. Being that I, too, play the piano, it gave me a different outlook on how there are always multiple ways to do something and there are also many different ways to interpret art.” 

After the conclusion of her performance, Block had a brief question and answer session with audience members.
