The music department held the Voice Studio Recital in Founders Hall on Tuesday, Nov. 26.

Students participating in the performance sang solos and group pieces, including songs from musicals “Oklahoma” and “Hairspray,” more modern songs and traditional pieces.

Secondary English education junior Rebecca Dubs attended the event and shared her thoughts on the night’s performance.

“My favorite part was being able to hear musical theatre pieces,” she said. “I was expecting a lot of classical music because that is what I generally think of a vocal recital. It was a beautiful recital filled with amazing voices through a mixture of classic and new musical theatre, and brought out the musical theatre enthusiast in me.”

Dubs described the event as “an enriching experience of diving into the musical theatre world while being able to peek into the life of a music education student.”

Dubs also shared her interest in the event and why she chose to attend.

“I love being able to see all the talent that Saginaw Valley has to offer, especially for free,” she said.

Music freshman Brandley Hanson also attended the event.

“Overall, I thought the concert was very different from anything I’ve (seen), and I really enjoyed the experience,” he said.

Hanson said he thought the performance was fun and engaging, adding that he thought the event was more than just singing.

“My favorite part of the performance was how all of the singers didn’t just perform but also took on a character,” he said.
