AMU Music Performances Open to All
Published on Tuesday, 26 April 2011 13:36
The end of an academic year at Ave Maria University offers an opportunity to see and hear what many of the students have accomplished.
One highlight is the performances by graduating music majors. Although not all music majors give performances -- some completed other projects, such as arranging and conducting music for Masses during the Easter Triduum -- many give vocal or instrumental recitals.
Here are events that are coming up as the academic year draws to a close. All recitals are in the executive dining room of the student union building.
April 27: Jamille Seaburg vocal recital at 7:45 p.m. Title: "A Musical Bouquet: Songs of Spring, Love, and the Resurrection" - featuring works by Brahms, Schumann, Schubert, Gounod, Delibes, and Mozart. Miss Seaburg has been a voice student at Ave Maria University for the last four years, majoring in Music with a minor in Literature. Following graduation, she will be getting married in June and plans to teach voice lessons and become involved in professional choirs and opera companies.
April 30: April Nicole Rutherford vocal recital at 7:30 p.m. [Note: time updated] Title: "The Three Loves of Aeneas in Vergil's Aeneid". The three loves are Dido, Creusa, and Lavinia.
