Frostburg State University student Adam Pomeroy, tenor/countertenor, will present his junior music recital on Friday, Nov. 11, at 8 p.m. in the Pealer Recital Hall of FSU’s Performing Arts Center. The recital is free and open to the public.
Accompanied by pianist Sean Beachy, Pomeroy will perform Hahn’s “A Chloris,” Fauré’s “Lydia,” Debussy’s “Romance,” Schubert’s “Standchen” and “Auf Dem Flusse” and Schumann’s “Auf einer Berg.” He will also perform arias from Handel’s “Serse” and “Alcina” and a couple of African-American spiritual field songs set by Moses Hogan, “Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child” and “Give Me Jesus,” as well as Stephen Sondheim’s “Giants in the Sky” and “No One Is Alone.” The recital also includes two duets: Pomeroy and tenor Brent Mitchell will perform Purcell’s “Sound the Trumpet,” and Pomeroy and soprano Britany Poindexter will perform Rossini’s “Qui Tollis” (from “Petite Messe Solennelle”).
