The Blackburn College Department of Music & Theatre will present a studio voice recital on Sunday, March 20 at 2:00 pm in Bothwell Auditorium. The concert is free and open to the public but reservations are required. Masks are required, as well.
This inaugural event will feature students participating in Blackburn’s Music program working with Grace Fisher, instructor of voice, and Dr. Joseph Welch, professor of music. A variety of solo pieces will be performed and will offer a chance for students to showcase their work throughout the year.
Tim Conner, a senior from Carlinville will be one of the students performing in the recital. He also serves as the concert producer as part of Blackburn’s unique student Work Program – a program where students can build a full resume with relevant, professional experience all while earning their degree. ”This is an opportunity to recognize and support the work of our vocal students,” Conner said. “We’re thrilled to highlight the individual progress that our singers have made this year.
This is an exciting time for music at Blackburn, as the Department and the College prepare to launch a re-imagined bachelor of arts degree in music next fall. This innovative academic program will be distinctive to Blackburn featuring specializations in piano and voice performance. It is designed to prepare students with a combination of musical performance skills as well as the in-depth entrepreneurial knowledge needed to launch professional careers in music.
