Junior Recital: Troy Bennett, Tenor

Sunday, April 6 at 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Pealer Recital Hall, PAC 101 Braddock Road, Frostburg, MD, Frostburg

FSU Student Troy Bennett to Present Junior Tenor Recital

Frostburg State University student Troy Bennett will present his junior tenor recital, accompanied by pianist Dr. Jay DeWire, Sunday, April 6, at 3 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Preforming Arts Center. The recital is free and open to the public.

Bennett will open the recital with “C’est Mon Ami” by The Marie Antoinette, a piece on love and faith to a loved one. The recital will also feature “Oiseaux si tous les ans” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, “Vorrei” by Francesco Paolo Tosti, “Musica Proibita” by Stanislao Gastaldon and “Spirate pur spirate” by Stefano Donaudy. Bennett will also sing selections from Robert Schumann’s “Myrthen,” including “Widmung,” “Freisinn,” “Lieder aus dem Schenkenbuch Im Divan: Nos. 1 and 2” and “Zwei Venetianische Lieder: Nos. 1 and 2.” Schumann’s “Myrthen” cycle was written as a wedding gift for his wife, Clara, and expresses the love between a woman and man with all of its struggles and joys. The recital will end with selections from Aaron Copland’s “Old American Songs” comprising “At the River,” “The Dodger,” “Long Time Ago” and “Bought Me a Cat.”

Bennett studies voice with Dr. Steven Soebbing at FSU. He is a member of the FSU Chamber Choir and FSU Vocal Jazz Ensemble and has been listed on the Dean’s List. A 2010 graduate of Francis Scott Key High School, Bennett expects to graduate from FSU in May 2014 with a degree in music management. He is the son of Bruce and Kate Bennett of Union Bridge, Md. Bennett plans to continue being involved with music at a local level by helping schools with their music programs and performances, as well as continue with his education by pursuing degrees in journalism and paramedics.
