Piedmont Professor to Perform Wide-Ranging Recital on Sept. 28
Price is planning an evening of music ranging from the Baroque era to the 20th century — plus an emotional finale.
“I’ll be ending the program with an arrangement of ‘He’s Got the Whole World in His Hand,’” said Price.
“It’s been a rough couple of years, with COVID. We’ve all been missing things like musical performances during the pandemic. I thought that would be an appropriate way to end the evening, with a reminder to stay calm and that this too will pass.”
Price holds a Doctor of Musical Arts-Voice Performance from the University of South Carolina, a master’s in vocal performance from Appalachian State, and a bachelor’s degree in music education and voice performance from Meredith College.
Price’s career has included numerous international performances, including recitals in Italy, Greece, and New Zealand. She has also been a featured soloist with the South Carolina Philharmonic and the Monroe Symphony Orchestra of Louisiana. She was the winner of the 2010 Georgia National Association of Teachers of Singing Artists’ Awards competition.
Price will be joined on stage by pianist and Piedmont alumnus Benji Stegner, who is now organist/choir director at First Presbyterian Church in Gainesville. He holds a Doctorate of Musical Arts from Baylor University, a master’s degree in conducting from Oklahoma City University, and his bachelor’s degree in music from Piedmont University.
The recital will be narrated by Bob Glass, Piedmont’s dean of libraries and librarian, who is also a former opera singer.
Piedmont University’s chapel is located at 992 Central Ave., Demorest.
