PJC Offers Two Free Musical Evenings

Paris Junior College is holding Back-to-back free musical events on Monday and Tuesday, April 29 and 30, in the Shaw Recital Hall at 7:00 pm and 6:30 pm, respectively.

The Spring Voice, Guitar, and Piano Student Recital, led by Dr. Michael Holderer, PJC Music Faculty, is on Monday at 700 pm.

Voice students will be presenting a diverse range of pieces, each one a unique musical journey. Sunimol Geetha will captivate with “Amor Ch’attendi” by Giulio Caccini; Bobbie-Lynn Dyer will enchant with “Die Lotusblume” by Schumann; Ryan Smith*will stir emotions with “If I Loved You” by Rodgers and Hammerstein from “Carousel,” Addison Brown* will charm with “When He Sees Me,” by Sara Bareilles from “Waitress,” Sarah Curtis* will mesmerize with “Ach Ich fuels,” by Mozart from “Die Zauberflöte” and “Almost Real,” by Jason Robert Brown from “The Bridges of Madison County,” and Alex Fowzer will transport us with “Du bist die Ruh,” by Schubert.

Alex Fowzer will perform “Italiana” anonymously on the guitar.

Piano students and the pieces they will perform include:

Edward Grimes, “Minuet in G-major” by J.S. Bach and “Minuet in A-minor” by Krieger; Chloe Walter, “Song of the Beach” by Pallett; Chloe Easton, “Rondo alla Turca” by Mozart; Elizabeth Guillory, “Prelude in G-minor” by Rachmaninoff and “Deux Arabesques” by Debussy; and Casey Reineche, “Pastiche” by various.

Returning to the Shaw Recital Hall at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, April 30, will be the PJC Choir, led by PJC Music Faculty Alaina Downing.
