FHU Showcases Work of Art, Music, Theatre Students
Although it is almost the end of the spring semester, many fine arts events remain on the calendar at Freed-Hardeman University. The Music Composition Recital and Main Street Fuzion concert were last week, but FHU is offering more opportunities for students, faculty, and the community to attend upcoming art exhibits, forums, concerts, and plays.
“Emerging Voices,” a student composition recital, was presented April 24, in Old Chapel Hall. The compositions were written by seven students under the instruction of Dr. Alan Kinningham. “The students enjoyed this avenue we’re giving them for a creative process,” he said. The works ranged from a composition for mixed instrumental ensemble, to pieces for a choir, to a computerized musical work.
The students and their compositions were: Ginny Primm, “Spifftivialicious;” Matt Holder, “Etude for Brass;” Jackie Dukes, “America, the Masterpiece;” Jessica Johnson, “Midnight in Paris;” Laura Glidewell, “The River Without a Name;” Riley Bowers, “Happy Is the Man;” and Cassidy Williams, “Ponderings on a Rainy Day in Paris.”
The Main Street Fuzion concert was Saturday afternoon, April 28, in Old Chapel Hall. Main Street Fuzion, a group of fourteen students, performed contemporary songs including “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen and “The Circle of Life” from “The Lion King.” Donations were taken at the concert to support FHU’s GO! Camp.
