Admission is free and open to the public.

The recital will be performed by students in the TAMIU College of Arts and Sciences’ department of Fine and Performing Arts Applied Voice Studio taught by Dana Crabtree, instructor of music and voice.
Accompanist for the program will be Dr. Martha Saywell, adjunct and collaborative pianist.

“The Voice Studio Midterm is an opportunity for our applied voice students, many who are music majors with voice as their principal instrument, to showcase some of their semester repertoire to the public. Each of the students will perform one of their semester pieces, creating a varied program of art songs and opera/oratorio arias in a variety of languages,” explained Crabtree.

According to Crabtree, the students have been enrolling in applied lessons every semester, honing their skills and working steadily toward the goal of presenting an entire hour-long solo recital—one of their final degree requirements.

“We want to encourage the Laredo and TAMIU communities to come out and hear what talented students we have in our voice program. This is the next generation of opera and musical theater singers and music educators and many of them are from Laredo. This is something to celebrate!” added Crabtree.
