This recital is hopefully an encapsulation of the musical ideas and melodies that

have taken up my headspace during these four years at Princeton. During these

four years, I have found myself pushed in many ways to explore, whether that

be in class, or ensembles, or in figuring out what I should do with the rest of my

life. I don’t really have too much to say about the music itself but it loosely maps

the main musical influences that I have drawn from in my own playing and

writing and hopefully sounds like somewhat of a finished product.

Most of the melodies were stuck in my head at one time or another, usually the

most inconvenient times. Many voice memos were recorded around 1 in the

morning waking up from a dream. This program should be a good reflection of

how lucid I was at the time…

Special thanks to Rudresh Mahanthappa, Miles Okazaki, Ted Chubb, Darcy

James Argue and Matthew Parrish for their instruction and support in and out of

ensembles.

Princeton, Adithya is part of Small Group I and the Creative Large Ensemble

and has studied under Rudresh Mahanthappa and Darcy James Argue, as well

as Wayne Leechford and Aaron Hill in his hometown. Apart from music, Adithya

enjoys playing tennis with Club Tennis, playing spikeall, watching television, and

exploring different music.

CRyder Walsh ’26 (Drums) is a sophomore majoring in Electrical and Computer

Engineering. He is the drummer in the Creative Large Ensemble and Small

Group I, and was also selected this year to play with the New Jersey

Intercollegiate Jazz Band. He also likes to produce and compose music in

Ableton in his free time.

Konstantin Howard is a saxophonist from Alexandria, VA. Also a Jazz Certificate

candidate, he has played in the Creative Large Ensemble and small groups

during his time at Princeton. He also plays in the award-winning rock band

Hanoi Ragmen. He famously met Gabe in the Joline Hall bathroom freshman

spring, and the two have collaborated on many projects ever since.

Gabriel Chalick plays trumpet. He’s from Naples, Florida and grew up playing all

sorts of music. He is graduating from Princeton with a degree in Art and

Archaeology and is a Music Performance Certificate candidate. He has played

in Combos, the Creative Large Ensemble, the African Music Ensemble, and the
