Some of Lander University’s top music students will share the spotlight when the university’s music department presents its annual Student Honors Recital on Thursday, Jan. 24, at 8 p.m., in Lander’s Josephine B. Abney Cultural Center Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.

Professor Emeritus of Music Dr. Tony Lenti described the event as a showcase of Lander’s best music students, all of whom were selected by competitive auditions on Nov. 30, 2012.  He said the recital will feature 10 students who are pianists, instrumentalists and vocalists.

Pianist Kevin Baggett, of Greenwood, will perform a dramatic original work titled “Desolate Isles,” while Kelsie Burgin Detweiler, of Abbeville, will play a piano piece by Franz Josef Haydn.

The recital will include five student vocalists. Jessica Hart, of Starr, will sing an aria from Mozart’s “Don Giovanni;” Markela Dandy, of Graniteville, will perform the poignant “Tell Me, Oh Blue, Blue Sky,” by Vittorio Giannini; Haley Shelton, of Greenwood, will sing an aria from the 19th-century composer Jules Massenet; Corrie Woods, of Leavenworth, Kans., will perform an aria by Giacomo Meyerbeer; and Michael Waltman, of Seneca, will sing “The Friar of Orders Grey,” by William Shield.

Instrumentals will include two virtuoso trumpet soloists: Tyler Will, of Greenwood, playing the middle movement of Eric Ewazen’s Trumpet Sonata; and Cody Beard, of Ninety Six, performing Bozza’s “Caprice.” Tyree Scott, of Greenwood, will play the contemporary virtuoso “Sonata for Alto Saxophone and Piano” of Wolfgang Jacobi.
