UCF music fraternities to perform Greek Recital Friday
With art on the walls and students in the halls, the UCF Visual Arts Building will also be filled with live music on Friday.
The 4 Way Musical Greek Recital, which is free and open to the public, is put on by UCF's four musical Greek organizations: Sigma Alpha Iota, Kappa Kappa Psi, Phi Mu Alpha and Tau Beta Sigma. The show will take place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The music chair for each organization has organized the pieces that are going to be played.
"There will be individuals and ensembles from each group performing, as well as small ensembles containing members from multiple organizations," said Angela Hobbs, a senior music education major.
Hobbs, the music chair for Sigma Alpha Iota, said attendees can expect to hear a variety of musical ensembles and genres, from classical to pop to musical theater.
Richard Stein, a senior music major, said this recital is going to be different from other concerts at UCF because it will have a bit of everything.
As a music chair for Kappa Kappa Psi, he has put together the program, reserved the space and communicated with the music chairs of each organization.
Keri Lee Pierson, the other music chair for Kappa Kappa Psi, said this recital is a bonding experience for the four fraternities to celebrate music together.
"It is a tradition and used to be private, but after we made it part of the music department, it's now available to anyone who wants to enjoy," said Pierson, a junior vocal performance major.
Jacob Lynch, a sophomore music education major and the music chair for Phi Mu Alpha, said attendees can expect to be enlightened by the approximate 150 performers.
Music chair for Tau Beta Sigma Sonia Small, a sophomore nursing major, said the goal for the recital is to have an event that will conclude the academic year with a fun musical performance — showing support for each music Greek organization.
