Students display talents at TFME recital

Last night, students in the Texas Future Music Educators club performed in their annual recital.

The recital featured a variety of instruments and genres, including three ensembles and a solo sung by a choir member.

The recital is a required part of being in TFME, and is meant to simulate the required recital, ranging from 25 to 50 minutes of music, that undergraduate music majors must give at the end of their senior year in order to graduate. It is also meant to help students overcome performance anxiety.

Students who perform in this recital often spend months preparing for the performance, and many treat it as a dry-run for upcoming solo and ensemble performances and auditions.

This year, two seniors, Audrey Cascarelli and Sarah Plaxco, performed at the recital. Both plan to pursue music in college to some degree.
