As a season finale for the 2014-2015 Artist Recital Series at Lone Star College-Kingwood, the music department is slated to host the "Honors Recital", a musical celebration honoring the top music students on campus.

“Music students often struggle to find time to practice and balance the demands of college life,” says Jay Whatley, chair of the department of visual and performing arts. “Certain students rise to the top, making their education a top priority, thriving in the college atmosphere. They spend hours immersed in their practicing and studies. We wanted to give these dedicated students an opportunity to showcase their abilities and training.”

Student performers have been nominated by music faculty and will perform in a wide-range of genres. In addition, other students will be recognized, including student scholars, student volunteers, club officers, and students graduating in May with the associate of arts in the field of study of music.

The event will be held Thursday, April 30, at 7:30 p.m. in the Lone Star College-Kingwood Recital Hall (Music Building room 101). Reservations are strongly recommended; any available seating will be sold at the door. Tickets are $10 for general admission or $5 for students and senior citizens. A light reception will follow the recital.
