TAMIU Voice Students Perform
at Midterm Recital Oct. 19

Catch a lovely show by tomorrow’s singing sensations at the upcoming Texas A&M International University Applied Voice Studio Midterm Recital Wednesday, Oct. 19 at 7:30 p.m. in the Center for the Fine and Performing Arts Recital Hall.

The event is free and open to the public.

Students will present a combined program of art songs and arias in varying languages and styles.

“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 or two 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.

Dr. Friedrich Gechter, associate professor of music and piano, will accompany on piano.

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 the 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.
