School of Music to hold honors recital
October 7, 2011
PLAINVIEW – The Wayland Baptist University School of Music will hold its annual Honors Recital at 7:30 p.m. on Monday in Harral Memorial Auditorium. The concert will feature the Spring 2011 music achievement award winners.
Each spring, music students compete for scholarship money in a contest judged by the School of Music faculty. Students compete in keyboard, vocal and instrumental contests according to academic classification. Juniors and seniors compete against each other, while freshmen and sophomores compete in another classification.
In the fall, the winners perform in an honors recital. Andrea Hamric, Kaylie Young and Christopher Kirby won in the keyboard, instrumental and vocal divisions of the freshman and sophomore classification. In the junior and senior grouping, Damaris Rios, TeAda Short and Corinna Browning won in keyboard, instrumental and vocal competitions, respectively. Browning was also named the overall winner of the competition. Monday’s recital will feature these six students in concert.
“These student musicians have received the highest honors in musical performance available through the School of Music,” said Dr. Ann Stutes, Dean of the School of Music.
Admission to the recital is free and open to the public.
