Sarah Cannon, mezzo-soprano, will be graduating this year and heading off to continue her studies at Austin Peay State University. She will major in Music Education with a concentration in voice and has received a $21,000 scholarship to APSU.
Several years ago, I worked out an agreement with the voice faculty there, that if our voice students perform a memorized sophomore recital, submit the video recording, and graduate from Vol State, this recital will count as their Junior Level Hearing. That means they will enter as a junior as soon as they transfer instead of waiting a semester to prepare and perform their recital at Austin Peay. This saves time and money for our students, a win-win.
Sarah will be singing songs in several languages: Italian, French, German, and of course, English. We will have a guest music faculty member on clarinet, Sheila Hotchkiss, and Dr. Nicholas Reynolds, VSCC faculty, will be the collaborative pianist with Sarah.
Everyone is invited to attend on May 9 @ 7:00 p.m. in SRB 151/choir room. The program will last approximately 45 minutes.
