Premier musicians give recital at Concordia
Twelve of Concordia’s top musicians performed in the fall honor recital on Sunday, Nov. 11, in the Music Center’s recital hall.
Students were selected to perform based on auditions judged by a panel of Concordia’s full-time music faculty. The biannual recital is intended to showcase exceptional student talent and effort.
“I feel very excited and honored to be apart of the recital,” said performer Elyssia Finch. The musicians, including Finch, sought to master their performance repertoire through private vocal and instrumental lessons and hours of rehearsal each week.
