Senior voice recital : a survey of musical styles : [an honors thesis (HONRS 499)]
In preparing the repertoire for my Senior Recital, I had to choose pieces that covered a wide variety of musical styles and showcased my vocal skills. A number of artistic considerations were at work in shaping my decisions, as were the requirements imposed by the School of Music. In this paper, I discuss those considerations and the final decisions they led me to, as well as some of the general musical characteristics of the chosen pieces. Included is a recording of the recital.
