before senior recital on April 24.
Individual Performances
Perfect Musicians and
Their Skills
Students in the Department of Music also presented
individual recitals during the year to emphasize the importance of individual expression in the arts. Seniors
giving recitals were Thomas Mooney, Clinton, Iowa
senior and Thomas Schafer, LeMars, Iowa senior.
Mr. Mooney presented his recital to the public on
March 30. Demonstration of his voice was given through
Elizabethan Folk Songs, Arias from several Italian operas,
and a series of Aaron Copeland selections.
Mr. Schafer ended his four years of study in the
Department with a recital on April 24. Oboe music of
Mozart, Handel, Marcello, Schumann, Collidge, and Wagner were among the composers chosen for this recital.
Underclassmen also performed on an individual
basis in Music Hours and even at Mass in Christ the
King. Two freshmen, James Staley and Dennis Thomas,
both talented flutists in the Department, gave their
musical talents to expression of the new liturgical music
each Sunday.
Mr. Sutton accompanies Mr. Mooney in the East Room in preparation for his March senior recital. Dennis Thomas, James Staley, and Thomas Mooney play a new style of liturgical music for the eleven o'clock Sunday Mass in Christ the King Chapel.
