RECITALS: Regina  Mushabac offers recital programs that include works from the standard cello repertoire in addition to a wide variety of less played contemporary pieces and encore selections.  In addition, Mushabac is known for her transcriptions of violin classics.  For example, she often includes a Mozart Violin Sonata that she arranged for cello.  Program lengths and repertoire vary according to the request of the presenter.  Mushabac adjusts a program to accommodate the audience.  For example, some audiences prefer an entire second half of encores that have familiarity and appeal. Other audiences prefer exposure to new music. In most recitals, Mushabac speaks to the audience, giving a brief explanation, description, or anecdote about the work to be performed.
