Concerto/Aria Competition Recital set for March 29

March 16, 2015

Finalists in the Indiana State University School of Music's annual Paul W. Hagan Concerto/Aria Competition will perform a recital 2 p.m. March 29 in the recital hall of the Landini Center for Performing and Fine Arts.

As many as three of the finalists will be selected to perform as soloists with the symphony orchestra or the wind orchestra during the 2015-16 academic year. The competing students are from all areas in the School of Music -- wind, brass, string, piano, voice and percussion -- and are undergraduate and graduate students.

Off-campus adjudicators are Davis Brooks of Butler University and Leon Harshenin and Christopher Bade of Taylor University. Results will be announced soon after the recital.

The event is sponsored by the School of Music as part of the school's performance opportunities and has been supported by the late Paul W. Hagan, who generously provided a cash stipend for the winners.
