This is the biggest fund-raising event of the school year for UNT College of Music students’ scholarships.

Raymond Rowell, assistant dean for scholarship services and external affairs, said the concert is a great opportunity to hear some extremely talented students perform.

“This is a great opportunity for faculty and staff to do good for the College of Music students, while having a great time at a great concert,” Rowell said.

The program includes song selections from opera and musical theater, including Bizet’s Carmen, Verdi’s La Traviata, Puccini's Tosca, Gershwin's Porgy and Bess, and the Tony Award-winning musical Les Misérables. The song “Caruso,” written by Lucio Dalla and dedicated to opera singer Enrico Caruso, will also be performed by student soloist Nereida Garcia with Itkin at the piano.

Also of note will be performances by vocal professors, Jeffrey Snider, baritone, and Carol Wilson, soprano, Itkin said. Snider, along with student vocalists, will perform in both the sextet from Jacques Offenbach’s Les Contes d’Hoffman and, adding the University Singers, a scene from Tosca. Wilson will be joined by two students for the famous trio from Richard Strauss’ Der Rosenkavalier.
