Award-Winning Music Students-Concert Coming Up!

Recently, several student members of the UACCM Music Department competed at the National Association of Teachers of Singing student competition at Henderson State University. Students from several two and four-year colleges throughout Arkansas competed in the competition. Five UACCM students advanced to the semi-final round: Candie Arnold of Little Rock, Jackson Flowers of Morrilton, Aubrey Hoult of Russellville, Kim Stone of London, and Kendra Thomas of Conway. Thomas advanced to the final round and received a third place overall award in the freshman women category.

During the competition, students were required to prepare and memorize three classical songs, one being sung in a foreign language. In the preliminary round, students’ techniques were judged for proficiency according to their ages. In the semi-final round, students competed directly against other semi-finalists and received a score, with the top three highest-scoring students advancing to the final round to perform in front of all participants and spectators.

UACCM students participating in the competition will join the full college choir and Soundscape group for a spring concert on Thursday, March 18 at 7:30 p.m. in the UACCM Fine Arts Auditorium. The theme for the concert will be "A Little Bit of Everything," with musical selections highlighting each period of music from the Renaissance to the 20th Century. The concert will include works by many recognizable names such as Handel, Mozart, and Beethoven, and choir members will explain to the audience how and why music changed stylistically throughout the periods.

The concert is being offered for free and is open to the public, and concessions will be available for purchase during the event. For more information on either concert, contact Shannah Cummings at (501) 977-2198 or at
