A Taste of American Music

From left to right: Kasia Dolinska, violin; Charlotte Gibson, piano; Dave Hamar, drums; Glenn Ireland, guitar; Melissa Hollis, vocalist; and Cynthia Selph, vocalist.

Members of the music faculty at University Campus presented a recital this week for students, fellow faculty members, and staff. The program consisted entirely of works by American composers, and gave students an opportunity to hear selections from musical theatre, jazz, gospel, and opera. All the performers lead ensemble groups on campus, so students also learned about opportunities to join vocal and instrumental groups. The recital was sponsored by the Department of English, Fine Arts, and Humanities.
