Campbell sang “Must the winter come so soon?” by Samuel Barber; “Alleluia” and “Non so più cosa son” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart; George Frideric Handel’s “Non disperar”; “Nur wer die zehnsucht kennt” by Pytor Il’yich Tchaikovsky; “Neue Liebe” by Felix Menedelssohn; Gioachino Rossini’s “The Cat Duet” accompanied by Kara Watkins, soprano; and “The Lord’s Prayer” by Albert Hay Malotte just to name a few.

Campbell’s recital was given in partial fulfillment of the Bachelor of Science in Music degree. She plans on attending graduate school in the fall to pursue a Master of Music in Vocal Performance.

“My senior recital was something that I worked toward for the last three years,” said Campbell. €I have worked hard to make it this far and it paid off in the end. I had a terrific time and I am so thankful to all of my friends and family who came to support me.”
