Music Students Perform at Fall 2022 Honor Recital
Concordia music students performed in the Fall Honor Recital on Nov. 10 at St. John Lutheran Chruch in Seward.
The semiannual honor recital at Concordia showcases the vocal and instrumental talents of student musicians. Musicians are chosen to perform based on auditions judged by music department faculty members. The recital is held twice a year, once each semester.
“It’s always a great experience for our students to showcase their talents and all of the hard work they have put into their craft,” said Dr. Kurt E. von Kampen, music department chair. “It takes a high level of dedication on the part of the students to rise to the level we see in the honor recital. The students who performed in this recital also represent many more students who are doing wonderful work throughout the semester.”
