2013 Honors Recital performers

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

The recital will honor students who represent the highest standards of achievement in musical performance. The event will showcase 12 performers selected by the School of Music faculty from over 300 full-time music majors.  

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

The program will represent all of the applied areas of performance, including brass, woodwind, percussion, strings, piano and voice. Musical selections will include works by Handel, Chopin, Mozart, Bellini, Poulenc, Floyd, Dutilleux, Walton, Viardot, and Koussevitsky, as well as a composition by Dr. Andy Harnsberger, assistant professor of percussion at Lee. 

The students come from a variety of performance studios. Siyao Li, piano, is from the studio of Ning An. Max Green, double bass, is from the studio of Steve Benne. Kelsey Duttlinger, soprano, is from the studio of Chery Brendel. Maria Shepherd, clarinet, is from the studio of Dr. Peter Cain. Aaron Murphy, bass-baritone, and Tyler Plemons, tenor, are from the studio of Tony Deaton. Tricia Logsdon, soprano, is from the studio of James Frost. Victoria Betts, marimba, is from the studio of Dr. Andy Harnsberger. Chelsea Davidson, soprano, is from the studio of Virginia Horton. Maddie Taylor, mezzo-soprano, is from the studio of Debbie Sheeks. Joseph Archer, trombone, is from the studio of Dr. Doug Warner. Lacey Thwing, viola, is from the studio of Xiaoqing Yu.

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.
