Music students honored at Peniston Recital
WILMORE, KY—Four music students were recognized for their work this week at the annual Peniston Honors Recital held Monday in Akers Auditorium. The Peniston Honors Recital—named in honor of Mrs. Era Wilder Peniston who taught music at the College for 38 years—is a showcase of the winners of earlier competitions in vocal performance, instrumental performance, keyboard performance and music composition.
Senior Wes Sillaman, a music major with an emphasis in composition from Cincinnati, Ohio; junior Matthew Kimmons, a music major from Forest, Va.; sophomore Kristen Elisa Reynolds, a vocal performance and music history major from Cookeville, Tenn.; and junior Nathan Davy, a double major in organ performance and classical languages from Forest, Va., received scholarships and gave a public recital in recognition of their achievement.
Asbury College has long been recognized for a consistent and concerted effort of encouraging the finest in academic achievement and personal spiritual faith. The Asbury College Music Department has sought to infuse a keen awareness into its music students that musical talent is both a divine gift and a distinct privilege. In recognition of a continued high level of student effort in performance, the music faculty sought to honor the many worthy music students by establishing an honors recital during the 1978-79 academic year. Outstanding music students are challenged to audition for keyboard, instrumental, vocal and composition honors.
