The recital was a culminating project in which students directly apply concepts learned in Conducting I, Conducting II and Choral Procedures courses at Briar Cliff University.

"The fact that we offer our undergraduate music majors opportunities to conduct an entire recital program with our top auditioned choral ensemble is extremely unique, not only among institutions of higher education in Northwest Iowa, but throughout the U.S.," said Dr. Sean Burton, assistant professor of music, Director of Choral Activities and division chairperson of Arts and Humanities at BCU.

Briar Cliff University is a Catholic institution with an enrollment of more than 1,150 students from 29 states and 11 countries.
