Howard Payne University senior Josiah Horton of Lockhart will present a vocal recital on Thursday, April 20, at 7:30 p.m. in the university’s Grace Chapel. The recital is free and is open to the public.
Horton is a church music-vocal major and English minor. He is from the studio of Dr. Greg Church, professor of music.
“This program has been one of my favorites to build with a student,” said Dr. Church. “The music comes from several different musical periods and is quite challenging. It requires great musicality and sensitivity by both the singer and the pianist to be performed well.”
Recital selections include pieces from George Frederick Handel, Hugo Wolf, Erik Satie and Kurt Weill. Horton will also perform “Four Burns Songs” by Benjamin Brittain and “O wie ängstlich” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Accompanying Horton on the piano is Dr. Elizabeth Wallace, chair of the Department of Music and tenured professor of music.
“Mr. Horton and Dr. Wallace have put a significant amount of work into this recital,” said Dr. Church. “This will be a wonderful evening of music performed by two highly talented musicians.”
