Honors Recital Highlights
November 9, 2014

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 9. Of the 73 students who auditioned at Seton Hall University the previous Sunday, 49 (47 solos, 1 duet) were selected as Honors winners to perform in one of two recitals, at 4 p.m. and 6:30 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.
