A Senior Recital

Erica Graff

Last Saturday, I went to a vocal Senior Recital at Blair. I am an A&S student, through and through, so I had no idea that Senior Recitals even existed. I figured I would enlighten you guys, so we can all be a little more knowledgeable about the smallest of Vanderbilt’s schools.

Basically, Blair students all major in some sort of music and most of these majors are performance majors. Senior recitals essentially represent the culmination of these students’ hard work and training from their four years at Vanderbilt. In order to hold the recital, each student must perform for a jury. If they pass, they can perform.

I attended my friend Caroline’s voice recital. She was absolutely amazing! First of all, she looked stunning in a blue floor length gown (see below). It was also so cool to here her sing. All of the vocal training at Blair is classical or opera. Two of Caroline’s three sets were in Italian, but she did do one song from a contemporary opera in English. I have not had much exposure to opera, but it is beautiful and I didn’t realize how powerful Caroline’s voice was.

After the recital, there was a small reception to celebrate Caroline’s big day. I am happy to report that Caroline passed with flying colors. Her family flew in from California and most of her friends were in attendance for her special day. Blair students work extremely hard, and I was so excited to get a glimpse of their world last weekend. I am not particularly musically talented, but I am so honored to be in the presence of those who are.
