Texas Wesleyan's highest-achieving music students will share their vocal and instrumental talents during the President’s Honors Concert at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, April 6, in Martin Hall.

"To perform in the President’s Honors Concert is one of the highest honors our music students can achieve," Dr. Jerome Bierschenk, music department chair, said.

The following vocal and instrumental students, who will be accompanied by collaborative pianist and coach Keith Critcher, will be performing in this year’s concert.

  • Alan Michael Whetsel Setford, baritone

The event is hosted by President Frederick G. Slabach and Melany Neilson, along with co-hosts Karen & Michael Burchfield. The Master of Ceremonies for the evening is Barbara Boulware.

The President's Honors Concert, established in 1996, is now in its 22nd year. The event migrated from its original venue in the Texas Boys Choir building to the Scott Theatre in the old Modern Art Museum, and finally to its current home in Martin Hall, where it has been since 2003.


Admission is free and open to the public. Seating is on a first-come basis. There is a reception to follow at Lou’s Place.
