Moman to sing solo at Lubbock Tenebrae service

Dr. Carl Moman, professor of music and chairman of the Division of Fine Arts at Wayland Baptist University, will be the tenor soloist for First United Methodist Church of Lubbock's tenebrae service on March 29.

The service will include the presentation of "The Crucifixion" by John Stainer. Direction is by Christopher Betts, associate director of music for FUMC. The service is planned for 8 p.m. in the church sanctuary, 1411 Broadway in Lubbock.

At Wayland since 1987, Moman is an experienced performer of recital, oratorio and operatic literature, specializing in the works of Bach, Schubert, Mozart and Handel, along with British and American art song. A graduate of William Jewell College and Washington University, he has appeared in a wide range of performances, from the St. Louis Symphony's Pucinella, In Memoriam Dylan Thomas and Mass by Stravinsky to the University of Missouri (Columbia) performances of Haydn's Lord Nelson Mass, Handel's Messiah and Kodaly's Te Deum.

Locally, Moman has appeared with the Plainview Symphony Orchestra as a soloist and in a solo concert of operatic arias. He has also been a guest artist with Wayland's International Choir and Symphonic Band and the Lubbock Chorale, a guest conductor for PSO, and a guest recitalist at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Texas Tech and Lubbock Christian University.

Moman will be presenting a faculty voice recital on April 15 with Dr. Gary Belshaw, pianist, Dr. Ann Stutes, violist, and Margaret Redcay, flutist, accompanying. The recital will be held at 7:30 p.m. in Harral Auditorium on the Plainview campus.

There is no charge for either the tenebrae service or the recital.
