Voice Recital Set at TAMIU Tuesday

TAMIU Voice Studio
Midterm Recital March 8

Listen to tomorrow’s singing sensations at the Texas A&M International University Voice Studio Midterm Recital Tuesday, March 8 at 7 p.m. in the Center for the Fine and Performing Arts Recital Hall.

This event is free and open to the public.

“The Voice Studio Midterm is an opportunity for our applied voice students, many who are music majors with voice as their principal instrument, to showcase some of their semester repertoire to the public. Each of the students will perform one of their semester pieces creating a varied program of art songs and opera/oratorio arias in a variety of languages,” explained Dana Crabtree, instructor of music and voice.

Pianist Rebeca Gonzalez de Anderson will provide accompaniment for the singers.

According to Crabtree, the students have been enrolling in applied lessons every semester, honing their skills and working steadily toward the goal of presenting an entire hour-long solo recital—one of their final degree requirements.

“We want to encourage  Laredo and TAMIU communities to come out and hear what talented students we have in our voice program. This is the next generation of opera and musical theater singers and music educators, and many of them are from Laredo. This is something to celebrate!,” added Crabtree.

The students are members of classes taught by Crabtree and Suzanne Ramo-Gechter, adjunct instructor of music/voice.
