Vocal recitals held by Music Performing Arts

California State University, Monterey Bay (CSUMB) has lots of opportunities to broaden one’s interest and benefit from the many options available. As a result, there is a panoply of talented individuals in varied fields including voice students. Many do not realize there are weekly voice recitals taking place at the Music Performing Arts Music Hall, Building 30, on Friday afternoons at 4 p.m. which are free and open to the public.

“As a student who completed my undergraduate work here at CSUMB, I was surprised – in fact, shocked – to learn that recitals take place on campus,” stated Brenda Ruiz, now a first year MBA student.

“The voice training students are a mixture of music and non-music majors with all levels of vocal performance skills,” according to Professor Tottress, Director of Vocal and Choral Studies.

Recitals so far this semester have included country music, folksongs and bluegrass, jazz and Broadway musicals. Upcoming programs feature duets and a holiday programs on Nov. 9 and 18, with final voice recitals on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1.

The Mid-Term Concert is scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 11, and the Peace on Earth Final Choral Concert on Saturday night, Dec. 8. These final concerts for the semester – all free and open to the public – will cover songs from Classical, Traditional and Contemporary Gospel Music to Popular Contemporary and Holiday favorites.
