2013 Honors Recital Highlights
November 10, 2013

Two outstanding Honors Recitals presented talented students of MEA teachers at the Randolph Performing Arts Center at The Music Den in Randolph on Sunday, November 10. Of the 83 students who auditioned at Seton Hall University the previous Sunday, 44 (39 solos, 1 duet and 1 trio) were selected as Honors winners to perform in one of two recitals, at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.

MEA graciously thanks Seton Hall University for the use of their facility for the auditions, and the Music Den in Randolph for the use of their attractive Performing Arts Center for our recitals. Thank you also to all those who contributed to making these recitals special to the performers, their parents, teachers and friends.
