Concordia University, Nebraska music students performed in the semiannual honor recital Oct. 27 in front of a limited audience in attendance, while the performances were streamed on the music department’s Facebook page.
“We have many, many talented students in the music department, vocalists and instrumentalists alike, and the Honor Recital will show a sampling of them,’ said Dr. Elizabeth Grimpo, professor of music. “Our students work hard; they are dedicated to their art; they love music; and they are grateful to share their talents with others, if they were here in person or watching the livestream.”
