Studio recitals allow students to become soloists


Studio recitals, a frequent event at UW-Whitewater, allows music students to perform once or twice a year.

The trombone studio recital is the first of the three recitals to take place over the weekend  to be held at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 16 in the Light Recital Hall.

Assistant Professor Michael Dugan, faculty trombonist, said studio recitals allow students to be featured as soloists.

“All twelve trombone players in the Department of Music are music majors,” Dugan said. “These students are either studying to be music educators, professional performing musicians, or BA students who just love music, but want to focus on other academic areas, too.”

Dugan said 12 different pieces will be performed by different trombonists. He said the music in the concert spans over 150 years or classical music for the solo trombone.

This show will kick off a musical filled weekend for all students and community members to attend.

The next studio recital, to be held at 3 p.m. on Nov. 17 in the Light Recital Hall, will consist of students playing classical guitar.


The program will consist of solos, duos, trios and quartets either written or arranged for the classical guitar, according to adjunct Instructor George Lindquist, faculty guitarist.

The recital will include music by Fernando Sor, Francisco Tarrega, F. Moreno-Torroba and Leo Brouwer for solo guitar, a duet by F. Carulli, a trio by Luigi Boccherini, and quartets by John Duarte, Maurice Ravel and Scott Joplin.

Student performers include juniors Jennifer Clark and Holden TeRonde and senior Jonathan Eleyet.

Lindquist said the program represents a variety of styles and illustrates the versatility of the classical guitar and the players.

“Hopefully it will also be enjoyable to the audience,” Lindquist said.


Students concentrating on the flute will perform their studio recital at 3 p.m. on Nov. 18 in the Light Recital Hall.

“The flute studio recital is a recital where everyone studying flute, both majors and minors, in the studio comes together and plays something,” Professor Robin Fellows, faculty flutist, said.

Fellows said there will be 16 different pieces played at this event. As the pitch of the flutes go up, the intensity of the recital will rise as well he said.

Students spend all semester working on pieces to perform at the recital.

Community members, students and faculty are welcome to come and witness music students expressing their talents and love for their instruments.

All performances are free to attend.
