Top CMU Musicians to Perform Recital
Some of the top music students from Swinney Conservatory of Music on the Fayette campus of Central Methodist University, are presenting a special recital on Wednesday, Nov. 7, in the Willie Mae Kountz Recital Hall at 7:30 p.m.
The recital is in preparation for these students to compete at the Missouri Music Teachers Association (MMTA) and Music Teachers National Association (MTNA) competition November 9-10 in Bolivar, Mo.
The recital is free and the public is welcome; however, the students are raising money to defray their travel expenses, so a bake sale will take place in the Conservatory hall. Additional donations will be gratefully accepted.
The students are performing a portion of the music they will present during the MMTA/MTNA competition. In the adjudicated event, they are required to perform either a 12- or 30-minute program, depending on the level of competition each has entered.
For this recital, Lakyn Baker (junior, Fayette) will play on trumpet "Sonata for B-flat Trumpet (Mit Kraft)" by Hindemith and "Carnival of Venice" by Arban. Luke McKinney (senior, Harrisburg) will play horn for "Allegro for Horn" by Haddad and "Scherzo Concertante" by Nelhybel.
Baritone Levi Gerke (freshman, Pilot Grove) will sing "Toglietemi la Vita Ancor" by Scarlatti and "Lydia" by Faure.
Performing "Sonata for Clarinet and Piano (Allegro Tristamente)" by Poulenc and "Adagio and Tarantella" by Cavallini on clarinet is Rebecca Shroyer (junior, Boonville). Michael O'Neill (senior, Pleasant Hill) on horn will play "Concerto No.4, K.495 (Romanza)" by Mozart and "Concerto No. 1 for Horn, Opus 11" by Strauss.
Donald Heaton (senior, Chillicothe) will play the saxophone for "Scaramouche (Vif)" by Milhaud and "Introduction and Samba" by Whitney.
Baker, McKinney, and O'Neill are students of Dr. John Perkins, associate professor of music. Gerke is a student of Dr. Susan Quigley-Duggan, associate professor of music. Heaton and Shroyer are students of Dr. Ron Shroyer, emeritus dean of the Swinney Conservatory.
Piano accompaniment will be provided by adjunct professors of music Kelley Head and Dr. Jorge Muniz.
