Honors Recital February 6
Twelve students chosen for excellence by the HSU Music Department faculty will perform in the annual Honors Recital on Friday February 6.
From performances after fall semester, a faculty jury selects the best among music students enrolled in studio lessons to represent each of the six areas: voice, piano, percussion, strings, brass and woodwinds.
This year’s performers are: singers Lorena Tamayo (mezzo-soprano) and Chris Parreira (baritone); Michael Donovan (violin), Andrew Heavelin (guitar), Craig Hull (trombone), Bret Johnson (trombone), Kyle McGinnis (alto saxophone), Niamh Mercer (Timpani), Rebeca Ramos (flute), Madeline Shapiro (piano), Vance Umphrey (snare drum) and Levi Walls (piano).
Recital selections range from Bach and Mozart to Eliot Carter and Ryo Noda.
Staff pianist John Chernoff accompanies several pieces.
The 2015 Honors Recital is presented on Friday, February 6 at 8 p.m. in the Fulkerson Recital Hall on the HSU campus in Arcata. Admission is free.
