Vocal Studio Recital No. 2

FSU Department of Music to Present Vocal Studio Recitals

The Frostburg State University Department of Music will present two recitals by students from its vocal studios, both at 7:30 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Woodward D. Pealer Performing Arts Center. Vocal Studio Recital No. 1 will be held on Monday, March 9, and Vocal Studio No. 2 will be on Tuesday, March 10. The performers will be accompanied by pianist Dr. Joseph Yungen. The recitals are free and open to the public.

Each performance features music majors from the vocal studios of Gregory Scott Stuart, Dr. Lori Sen and Francesca Aguado. The students will perform a mix of art songs and selections from opera, musical theatre and popular songs.

The Monday evening program will be a Celebration of Female Composers in commemoration of Women's History Month. The Department of Music welcomes to the stage students from the FSU Women’s Studies Program, who will provide brief biological sketches of the composers featured on the program.

Intended to address the all-too-frequent omission of musical works by women from the concert stage, this celebration will feature the following nine women composers:

  • Zina Goldrich (living American musical theatre composer)
  • Maria Grever (the first female Mexican composer to achieve international acclaim)
  • Fanny Hensel (German Romantic composer, the sister of Felix Mendelssohn)
  • Marta Keen (living American composer)
  • Lori Laitman (American composer from Potomac, Md.)
  • Florence B. Price (African American)
  • Clara Schumann (German Romantic composer, the wife of Robert Schumann)
  • Jeanine Tesori (living American composer, a prolific and honored female musical theatre composer)
  • Pauline Viardot (French Romantic composer of Spanish parentage)

The Tuesday evening program will be more wide-ranging and will include works by Franz Schubert, Gaetano Donizetti, Richard Strauss, Gabriel Fauré, Fernando Obradors and William Finn.
