Marietta College’s Ayako Diaz ’19 (Strongsville, Ohio) will present her junior Vocal Performance recital at 3 p.m., Wednesday, April 4th, in the Alma McDonough Auditorium.

The recital, which is given in partial fulfillment of the Bachelor of Music in Music Performance degree, is free and open to the public.

During this 30-minute recital, Diaz will put her vocal ability on display singing numerous selections from various musical periods from 1685-1924. She will also be performing in four different languages, including English, French, German and Italian. Some selections on the recital include Domine Deus from Vivaldi’s Gloria; Laudaate Dominum from Vesperae solennes de confessor by Mozart; Apre un reve from Trois Melodies, Op. 7 by Fauré and Poor Wand’ring One from The Pirates of Penzance, along with others.

As a student of Dr. Amy Yekel, Diaz’s junior recital is the first recital given toward the degree. Her senior recital will be given next year as a full-hour recital.
