The Sewanee Voice Studio presents:
Fall Vocal Showcase
Students of Kerry Ginger and Erik Gustafson
Featuring Dr. Bernadette Lo, piano
Friday, November 12
Guerry Auditorium
Free admission; audience masking required
On Friday, November 12 at 7:00 p.m., the students of the Sewanee Voice Studio will present an exciting and eclectic concert of vocal works from the musical theatre, pop, folk, and classical repertoires. The performers, all students of Sewanee faculty Dr. Kerry Ginger and Erik Gustafson, will be joined by piano faculty Dr. Bernadette Lo. The concert will take place in Guerry Auditorium, and is open to all Sewanee students, faculty, and community members.
"This is a proud moment for the combined voice studios," says Dr. Ginger. "Our students have worked hard all semester on a variety of repertoire, and are developing not only as vocalists but also as singing actors." The voice students represent many majors and experience levels, she adds, and "all share a commitment to storytelling, craft, and musical excellence."  For Gustafson, the energy is palpable, especially following the pandemic: "Covid presented so many challenges for singing, and now we are ready to share and connect. We can't wait to sing for you!"
From Adele to Sondheim, Simon and Garfunkel to Man of La Mancha, and Britten to Bring It On, the program draws on many traditions, all under one banner: connecting through song.
