KEENE, N.H. 10/30/03 - Two Keene State College students perform their senior music recitals on Sunday, Nov. 16, at 3 p.m. in the Alumni Recital Hall of the Redfern Arts Center on Brickyard Pond. The recital, presented by the KSC Department of Music, is free and open to the public. For further information, call 603-358-2177.
Tom Morse of Londonderry will play trumpet, accompanied by KSC artist-in- residence George Loring on piano. Morse, a senior music major, will play Leroy Anderson’s A Trumpeter’s Lullaby, Guy Ropartz’s Andante and Allegro, the first movement from Kent Kennan’s Sonata for Trumpet and Piano, and a concerto by Alexander Arutunian.
Jessica Makris, a senior music education major from Concord, will play flute in a separate program.
While at Keene State, Morse has been a four-year member of the Music Educators National Conference and as a sophomore served on the executive board of the MENC campus chapter, for which he received a Keene State Service Award. He received the KSC Musical Talent Scholarship for the 2003-04 academic year. He also was named to the 2002 New England Intercollegiate Band based on audition.
All senior music majors are required to present a public recital to meet graduation requirements for a music degree from Keene State. The students organize all aspects of a recital, from music selection, to technical direction, to publicity and printing the program.
Students interested in music may opt for one of three programs: bachelor of music in music education, bachelor of music in music performance, or a bachelor of arts in music. For further information about the music program, call 603-358-2177.
