BCU Music Majors Present Student Conductors' Recital
FREE Catholic Classes
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (Catholic Online) - Briar Cliff University music majors recently presented the Student Conductors' Recital in the Chapel of Our Lady of Grace on campus. At this free public event, the following Briar Cliff student conductors led a program of varied choral works with BCU's Chamber Choir: Gabriel Alves, Recife-Pernambuco, Brazil; Christopher Hanson, Sioux City; Alexander Hoefling, Moorhead, Iowa; and Zachery Thomas, Council Bluffs, Iowa.
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.
