2019 Music Honors Recital Announced

The Department of Music in the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences is thrilled to announce the 37th annual Music Honors Recital. This recital is a celebration of the achievements of the 2019 Honors Recital Competition which took place in February.

The recital is Sunday, April 14 at 3:00pm. The event is free and open to the public.

A tradition of the Department of Music at the University of Arkansas, the competition was established in the spring of 1983. Since then, every year, the auditions for this event take place in late February. Independent judges from different universities have selected the winners. This year's program includes outstanding University of Arkansas student artists from nine different studios in the Department.

The 2019 winners include Donald Bohanon-Gauthier (graduate flute student), Ismaelena Serrano (graduate voice and choral conducting student), Clayre Parson (music minor), Tony Dutton (undergraduate voice major), Isaac Baker (undergraduate voice major), Katelyn Barry (undergraduate oboe major), Ryan Moos (graduate euphonium student), Jackie Tavernaro (undergraduate percussion student), Charles Hartman (undergraduate cello major), Raquel King (advanced certificate voice student), Landon Cole (graduate saxophone student), Grant Hollis (undergraduate saxophone major), Benjamin Turner (undergraduate saxophone major), Mikhail Silcox (undergraduate saxophone major), Bailey Ross (undergraduate saxophone major), and Ryan Miller (undergraduate saxophone major).

Congratulations to the distinguished students, who were chosen to perform! For the second year, the Department of Music will award the "Audience Prize" to one of the performances at the recital. This prize is selected based on an audience vote at the end of the performance, with the winner being named at a reception directly following the concert.
