Concordia University, Nebraska, will hold its Fall Honor Recital Tuesday, Oct. 29 at 7 p.m., in the Recital Hall of the Music Center on campus.

“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, associate professor of music. “Our students work hard; they are dedicated to their art; they love music; and they feel privileged to share it with an audience.”

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. The recital is held twice a year, once each semester.
