SEWARD, Neb. — Concordia University, Nebraska, will hold its Fall Composer Recital at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 7 and its Fall Honor Recital at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 8 in the Recital Hall of the Music Center on campus.
Eight students have composed original pieces for the Composer Recital. The recital comprises a variety of music written for vocals, piano, organ and handbells.
“This recital is important because all the music has been composed or arranged this semester, and the students work to recruit their own ensembles and run the rehearsals for their pieces,” said David con Kampen, music instructor in composition. “It’s a great opportunity for the student composers to practice organizing a performance opportunity for their own music.”
Students audition for an opportunity to perform in the biannual honor event showcasing top music students as selected by Concordia’s music faculty, This year, nine student musicians were selected to perform.
Students performing in the Honor Recital include Miriam Lipke, sophomore, Alamosa, playing “Fantaisie Impromptu” by Frederic Chopin on the piano.
