“Eugénie Rocherolle Day” proclaimed
Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle proclaimed Feb. 26, 2016, “Eugénie Rocherolle Day” and presented her with a written proclamation and a medallion representative of a key to the city. Member at Large Eugénie Rocherolle’s achievements are key to the future of our great organization, and we salute her magnificent experience and the honor she so rightly deserves.
Eugénie was commissioned by the Huntsville Alabama Music Teachers Association to compose a suite for the organization’s 20th anniversary. “Celebration Suite” was the title for the commission and it included three original duets for piano.
The final movement was a thrilling piece performed on multiple pianos, adding to the exhilaration of the performance. Although the suite was written for two performers at one piano, this performance was amplified and enhanced by additional players at six pianos.
