On Friday, April 21 in the Alumni Recital Hall, the Keene State College (KSC) music department presented the Voice Studio Recital that featured junior and senior voice majors.
The performance featured KSC students Molly McCoy, Emma Nelson, Karver Bosela, Katrina Feraco, Victoria Tucker, Matthew McGinnis and Amy Lesieur.
The performers are all students of professors Dr. Daniel Carberg, Diane Cushing and Pamela Stevens.
Professor Cheryl Sharrock played the piano accompaniment for the student performers.
The concert program consisted of a variety of works from the classical composer WA Mozart to the Broadway composer Richard Rodgers.
KSC junior Molly McCoy opened the voice recital with two opera arias composed by WA Mozart.
McCoy said she was satisfied with her performance, while “things can always go on the better end.”
She remarked that she aspires to attend graduate school to study to be an opera singer after her graduation from Keene State.
KSC senior Katrina Feraco performed two contrasting works by Charles-Francois Gounod and Jule Styne.
Regarding her performance, Feraco remarked that “it went well. We [the Music Department] have been trying to have student recitals since they are a great place to show individual voices.”
John Rogers, an audience member who was visiting from Plymouth State University, said he was very impressed with each student’s performance.
Rogers further remarked, “Each and every performer was completely enchanting, which brought unique flavors to the performance which I will remember.”
