Honors Recital Features Top Student Musicians
The Alma College Music Department opens the winter semester with its
annual Honor’s Recital featuring 13 student soloists. The performers
include members from the Alma College Choir and Kiltie Band and Alma
The concert takes place at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 29th in the Remick Heritage Center. The performance is free and open to the public.
The recital is a good opportunity for students to have fun while supporting their fellow classmates, says Murray Gross, faculty member and director of the Alma Symphony Orchestra.
“Students see each other performing on stage, but there are few opportunities to see students as soloists,” he says.
Gross explains that the performers are all music students who were required to perform juries for the music faculty as part of their private lessons.
“These are students who have done an outstanding job on their juries,” Gross says. “It is an honor to be chosen by the faculty to perform in this concert.
“The variety of music and the talent of the students is sure to make this an enjoyable concert for all,” he says.
