Given the choice between an internship or a project, he decided to create a memorable performance for a select group of friends and family. The recital took place on the stage of the Prior Jolleck Hall, where Bared and his bandmates showcased their skills and delivered a masterclass-worthy performance.

Their repertoire spanned across various genres, carefully chosen to evoke emotions and resonate with the audience. Each song held a special meaning for Bared, as they reminded him of cherished family members and conveyed important messages about the ever-changing world we live in.
