Lee Honor Recital 2013 Showcases Student Musicianship

Friday, March 22, 2013

The Lee University School of Music will present its annual Honor Recital on Monday at 7:30 p.m. in the Squires Recital Hall. 

The recital will honor students selected by the School of Music faculty who represent the highest standards of achievement in musical performance. The event will showcase 14 performers chosen from over 300 full-time music majors.

Selection of students for this event began early in February with recommendations from the music performance faculty, followed by auditions. Based on composite scores from those auditions, the faculty selected students to perform for the occasion. 

The program will represent several areas of performance, including brass, woodwind, percussion, strings, piano and voice. Musical selections will include works by Haydn, Rossini, Franck, Vivaldi, Rachminoff, Bach, Handel, Bizet, as well as a composition by Assistant Professor of Music Andy Harnsberger. 

Undergraduate students come from a variety of performance studios. Students performing from the studio of Professor Tony Deaton include Sara Baker, soprano; Kaylee Gallagher, mezzo-soprano, and Aaron Murphy, bass-baritone; from the studio of Professor Virginia Horton will be Chelsea Davidson, mezzo-soprano; from the studio of Dr. Andrea Dismukes will be Jessie Johnson, mezzo-soprano; from the studio of Dr. Brenda Moye will be Curtis Nichols, alto saxophone; from the studio of Professor Debbie Sheeks will be Maddie Taylor, mezzo-soprano; from the studio of Professor Gordon James will be Erica Tipton, horn; from the studio of Dr. Andy Harnsberger will be Vinny Tunkel, marimba; and, from the studio of Professor Ning An, will be Xin Yu Wang, piano, and Wan-Lin Yu, piano. 

Graduate performers include Marcelo Jimenez, viola, from the studio of Professor Xiaoqing Yu, Lamprini Lindeman, mezzo-soprano, and Vera Voznyuk, soprano, both from the studio of Dr. Andrea Dismukes.

This event is free, non-ticketed and open to the public. A reception will immediately follow in the atrium of the DeVos Center for the Humanities.
