An upcoming senior voice recital by Omaha native Katherine Musick will feature a wide range of pieces from different eras and composers at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 24, in the University of Nebraska at Kearney Fine Arts Recital Hall.
A soprano, Musick’s recital will include works by Handel, Schumann and Mozart, among others. Musick, who is a student of Dr. Anne Foradori, has received numerous awards, including a first place finish in the junior women category of the statewide National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS) competition.
Of the selections she will perform on the Saturday recital, Musick said she is especially fond of one piece in particular.
“My favorite piece is the last piece on the program: George and Ira Gershwin’s ‘They Can’t Take That Away From Me,’” she said. “This has been one of my favorite pieces for many years.”
She will be accompanied on piano by Dr. Marilyn Musick, who is her aunt. In addition, the recital will feature a duet between Musick’s soprano vocals and Jeremy Stober on piccolo trumpet.
Katherine Musick is the daughter of James and Karla Musick of Omaha. A 2003 graduate of Omaha Central High School, Musick plans to student-teach in Omaha next fall and then graduate from UNK in December.
The recital is free and open to the public.
