Voice at UALR
If you love to sing, the University of Arkansas at Little Rock offers opportunities to perform as a member of our choral and opera ensembles, or to shine as a soloist in jazz ensemble, oratorio, opera or song recital. Our experienced, world-renowned faculty offers private and class voice lessons, teaches classes in diction and performance skills, and leads a summer study program in Italy.
UALR students regularly perform with area professional music and theater organizations, such as The Rep, The Arkansas Symphony, The Hot Springs Music Festival and Wildwood Park.
Saturday, June 1, 2013: Dorothy Sawatski Tribute Concert
The UALR Voice Program celebrates the 50-year teaching career of Dorothy Sawatski, Associate Professor Emeritus of Music, this Saturday, June 1, at 1:00 p.m. in the Stella Boyle Smith Concert Hall.
Former students, many of whom are now professional musicians and teachers in their own right, will present a tribute concert honoring Professor Sawatski’s legacy as the founder of UALR’s voice, opera, and musical theatre programs. Chancellor Joel Anderson will speak at the event; former UALR music professor Ray Moore will emcee. A reception for Prof. Sawatski will follow the concert in the lobby of UALR’s Fine Arts Building.
The tribute concert and reception are free to the public, and all friends, former colleagues, and former students of Prof. Sawatski are invited to attend.
