KENOSHA — The annual Carthage College Honors Recital will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 20, in A.F. Siebert Chapel at Carthage, 2001 Alford Park Drive. The free concert will be preceded by an awards ceremony at 1:30 p.m.
The students selected are honored as the best performers of the year. The concert is a longstanding tradition at Carthage, alongside other esteemed schools of music, and gives students the opportunity to perform for and be recognized by their peers for the outstanding work they have done. The recital’s participants are chosen through a highly selective audition process. Performers are not limited by year in school: all members of the department are eligible to participate. However, students of music must get the approval of a faculty member to audition, and are then narrowed down through individual auditions.
In order to be selected for the event, musicians must show mastery in their given instrument and choose music that is self-contained, in that it focuses on a particular composer or theme. This year’s recital will feature Miranda Aldrich, oboe; Heather Beckman, violin; Geng Chen, cello; Mary Kelly Hutchinson, violin; Lauren Lewis, flute; Jia Liu, piano with the President’s String Quartet; Jamie Serena, piano, and Angela Yu, soprano.
There is no admission fee.
