Shepherdstown, WV--Shepherd University student musicians and ensembles will perform at the Annual Honors Recital on Sunday, April 14 at 2:30 p.m. at the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts in Hagerstown, Maryland. The recital is sponsored in part by Cinda and Spence Perry, and is free and open to the public. A reception hosted by members of the museum's volunteer organization "The Singer Society" will follow the concert.

This is the 10th year the recital has taken place at the museum and the 12th year Shepherd's Department of Music has honored its outstanding student performers. Established in 2000 by Dr. Scott Beard, professor of music and dean of graduate studies and continuing education at Shepherd, the first recital took place as part of the Reynolds Hall Recital Series. The Honors Recital was seen as an additional performance opportunity for students, as well as a chance to showcase the talented musicians in the department.

The students performing on the recital were selected and nominated from the numerous recitals, juries, and other performances at Shepherd. The program will feature solo and ensemble works for voice, piano, strings, bassoon, percussion, and saxophone, encompassing works by American and European composers. The selected performers Nathan Arch, piano; Tyler Arnold, trumpet; Allyson Bayer, voice; Ian Karraker, violin; Alana Gondeck, bassoon; Justin Loizos, saxophone, Bunker Hill; Christina Oliver, percussion; and Eduardo Rivera, voice.
