‘Her accompanist didn’t show up so she played the flute and piano parts’

Some serious musical dexterity, right here...
It’s a scenario some musicians might dread: arriving at a recital to find your collaborative pianist hasn’t turned up.
But when you’re student Sunny Baik, you take lemons and make them into a wonderful display of musical virtuosity.

The video was shared back in 2018, but has recently resurfaced on Reddit.
Sunny’s faultless performance has, inevitably, prompted a few raised eyebrows from social media users who have questioned whether she could pull off such a show without practice.
“No less impressive, but she absolutely rehearsed this,” Reddit user FatherJohnMeesty said.
Another user concurred, responding: “For sure. At a college recital she would definitely be playing a piece more complicated for flute, not something that only requires one hand.”
Still, it’s darned impressive. Bravo, Sunny, on your musical dexterity and for pleasing the Internet so.
