PLATTSBURGH - Rory Wallace, a music student at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh, will present his senior voice recital in Hawkins Hall's Krinovitz Recital Hall, located on Beekman Street this Sunday, April 10, beginning at 3 p.m.
Wallace, a voice student of Jo Ellen Miano, associate professor in music, will be accompanied by music faculty member and pianist Dr. Karen Becker.
The first half of the program will begin with select vocal works by Bellini, Donaudy, and Faur and conclude with the elaborate aria "Be Not Afeard" from Lee Hoiby's operatic version of "The Tempest." The second half of the program will include selections from Schumann's "Dichterliebe" and Vaughan Williams' "Songs of Travel."
Wallace attended the College of Science, Technology and the Applied Arts of Trinidad and Tobago where he was grounded in his technical musical training and began his journey toward professional musicianship. He then transferred to SUNY Plattsburgh in the spring of 2009 where he began vocal studies with Miano. During his time at SUNY Plattsburgh, Wallace has performed with the Cardinal Singers, College Chorale, Choral Union, Gospel Choir and the Mambo Combo.
