A wonderful evening featured operatic excerpts, art songs, and instrumental performances written by legendary composers ranging from Strauss and Puccini to Bernstein and Gershwin. The 12 performers were selected from nearly 30 students who auditioned.

Pate Professor of History of Early American History and coordinator of Secondary Education Program in History, shared some of Texas Wesleyan’s history and introduced the hosts for the evening, Texas Wesleyan President Frederick G. Slabach and Melany Neilson, and John and Kathy Murphey. Mr. Murphey is a member of the Board of Trustees and the business-executive-in-residence at Texas Wesleyan School of Business Administration.
