The Honors Recital recognizes students demonstrating the highest performance level in selected voice or instrument. Faculty members nominate students who have made significant progress in private study lessons.

The Jazz Ensemble repertoire celebrates jazz legends, including the romantic ballad “Blue and Sentimental” by Count Basie; the musical dialog of “Don't Get Around Much Anymore” by Duke Ellington; the chart-topping “Stompin' at the Savoy” by Benny Goodman, Chick Webb, and Edgar Sampson; and the Billboard hit “Feels So Good” by Chuck Mangione. Finally, the robust and recognizable “Star Wars Medley” by John Williams may just bring down the house. The Jazz Ensemble is directed by Michael Genslinger.
