East Los Angeles College’s Music Department is holding a student recital at noon on Wednesday, December 4th in building S2. Admission is free.
This is the third recital of the semester, and includes students that have been accepted into the applied music program.
According to Dr. Tony Lupica, the Director of Choirs, the recital will consist of singers, a string orchestra ensemble and many more that are in the Applied Music Program. The pieces musicians will be performing has yet to be determined.
Through out the Fall semester, a total of three student recitals are held. These performances help the students enhance many techniques, and gain real world performance skills.
“Students in the applied music program train like athletes would for the Olympics,” says Dr. Lupica. “When they perform at the recitals, its a culmination of what they have been working on in class.”
Hadassah Meneses, an Applied Music major and Opera singer, will be participating in this recital.
“This will be my 6th recital since coming to ELAC,” says Meneses. “I will be performing Mon Coeur S’ouvre a Ta Voix from Samson and Dalila by Camille Saint-Saens.” Meneses also says, “these recitals not only to critique the performance, but also guide you and challenge you take on more. They push you.”
