Adam Fahncke, a 2006 graduate of Wapakoneta High School, is a four-year student at Ohio Northern University where he is studying music and business management. He has been preparing for his recital ever since he entered college.
â€śIt takes many hours, not only sitting at a piano, but I work on score study, studying the music, learning the music and memorizing the music,â€ť Fahncke said. â€śItâ€™s a long process.â€ť
