ASU Concert to Focus on Opera, Musicals
Angelo State University students will perform musical numbers and scenes from well-known operas, operettas and musicals Sunday, Nov. 16, during the fall performance of the Opera Music Theater Workshop in the ASU Carr Education-Fine Arts Building, 2602 Dena Drive.
The concert will run from 7:30-9 p.m. Sunday in the Carr Building’s Eldon Black Recital Hall and is open free to the public. The program will include scene performances from “Beauty and the Beast,” “Jekyll and Hyde,” “Camelot,” “Spamalot,” “Man of La Mancha,” “The Gondoliers” and “Die Fledermaus.”
“Throughout the semester, students develop their stage presence, combine acting and singing skills, become more comfortable working with costumes and props and develop confidence in singing solos, duets, trios and small ensemble numbers,” said Dr. Christine Buckstead, assistant professor of music and director of the workshop.
She said the class is composed mainly of music and theater majors, but is open to any ASU student by audition or permission of the instructor.
