FSU Student Lane Conklin to Present Vocal Recital
Frostburg State University student Lane Conklin will present a vocal recital on Sunday, Sept. 22, at 3 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Performing Arts Center. The tenor will be accompanied by Dr. Jay DeWire on piano. The recital is free and open to the public.
Galvin will perform selections set by Vincenzo Bellini, Ludwig van Beethoven and Reynaldo Hahn, then “La fleur que tu m’avais jetée” from “Carmen” by Georges Bizet, “The Hardy Norse Woman” and “The Aquiline Snub” by Charles Villiers Stanford, “Love and Friendship” and “The Journey” by John Ireland and “Un di s’ebben ramentomi ... Bella figlia dell’amore” from “Rigoletto” by Giuseppe Verdi. He will be joined by soprano Bailey Kerr, mezzo-soprano Stephanie Laut and baritone Zachary Dodge during the last piece.
Conklin’s versatile tenor voice has recently been heard in many regional performances, singing classical, show tunes, jazz, blues, gospel, R&B and other styles of music. In addition to theatrical roles like Nanki-Poo from Gilbert and Sullivan’s “Mikado,” King Caspar in Menotti’s Christmas opera “Amahl and the Night Visitors” and Tamino in Mozart’s “The Magic Flute,” he has been featured as the soloist for numerous oratorio and choral works such as Rossini’s “Petite Messe Solenelle” and Carol Barnett’s “Bluegrass Mass.” Most recently, Conklin appeared on the FSU stage, performing Don José in scenes from “Carmen” and other featured scenes.
A graduate of Chesapeake High School in Pasadena, Md., Conklin expects to graduate in December with a bachelor’s degree in vocal performance. He is a member of Phi Mu Alpha. He is the son of Andrew and Lorene Conklin of Pasadena.
