LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) – Graduates of Eastern Oregon University’s music programs are presenting senior recitals and projects through June 12, the day before commencement.
“This year’s senior class is one of the largest we have experienced and is full of dedication, talent and ambition,” said Jamie Jacobson, a vocal instructor at the university. “The community is invited to attend all events and support the hard work of the musicians who have devoted their time at EOU to developing their craft.”
Many of the students will be going on to both graduate school and the private teaching world. Their participation in on-campus music activities includes the EOU Chamber Choir, Community Choir, Community Band, Grande Ronde Symphony, Percussion Ensemble, 45th Parallel, Fiddle Ensemble, Drumline and other groups.
They have also been engaged in the community, taking on roles as church choir directors, accompanists, children’s choir assistants and interns in local school music programs.
“These leaders can often be found either in a practice room honing their skills, on stage performing, or out in our community providing support for local music, and we hope everyone will join us in their final presentations of hard-earned successes,” Jacobson said.
All performances are free and open to the public.
