Recitals showcase talents of music majors
Help prepare for future auditions
BY CHIARA AUSTIN
Juniors Emily Riehl and Katie
Curtis will don their old prom
dresses Sunday, but this time they
won’t be dancing the night away.
Instead the two will be singing
in their junior voice recital.
For Riehl and Curtis, the recital
will allow them to perform for fam
ily. friends and even people who have
never heard them sing before.
UNC music majors have been
showcasing their talents during
junior and senior recitals since the
beginning of the semester.
Riehl and Curtis’ voice teacher.
Terry Rhodes, said the recitals pre
pare many students for auditions
for summer programs and gradu
ate school auditions.
“I don’t know any people who
are voice majors and don't do a
recital." Riehl said.

Voice teachers have been recom
mending students to do joint recitals
this year because of the large number
of voire majors.
Performances are highly encour
aged by voice teachers, Riehl said.
“It s really important, especially if
you’re going to look at grad schools,
to have a lot of performance-ready
material so you can show that you
are versatile." Curtis said.
Curtis said that when choosing
music for this year's recital she tried
to find music from different time
periods or genres to proride variety.
“It was definitely in collabora
tion with my voice teacher, but 1
also chose songs that would reflect
who 1 am and songs that I love to
perform," Riehl said.
Rhodes said there are 23 or 24
voice majors giving recitals this
“It’s something that’s not a
requirement, but they all do it," she
said, adding that students have to
get faculty approval three weeks
before their recitals.
And though preparing for the
recital is intense, many students said
they enjoy the experience.
“You have other performance
opportunities, but this is taking it
to a different level," Curtis said.
Unlike vocal students, music
performance students are required
to give a recital, junior saxophone
player Ben Crouch said.
“Almost everything I’m going
to play on it I’ve played before,"
he said of the performance he will
give Saturday, noting that his per
formance will be graded.
Riehl and Curtis decided how
they wanted to organize their con
cert. Riehl said most recitals are
organized into sets of music with a
common theme or composer.
Student recitals are also a chance
to creatively showcase talents.
“The entire program is up to

Martinez chose to play a ukulele
during his recital, playing a Hawaiian
version of “Over the Rainbow."
Curtis and Riehl’s decision to
wear prom dresses was their own.
“I love a formal dress, so 1 went
for it," Curtis said.
