SHERMAN, TEXAS-Austin College vocalists Anna Bryant '13 and Evan Runyon '13 will present a Senior Recital on March 3 at 3 p.m. in Craig Hall, Recital Hall. The performance is free and open to the public.

A mezzo soprano, Anna's performance will include Schubert's "Gretchen am Spinnrade," Gershwin's "Summertime" from Porgy and Bess; "Wie Melodien zieht es mir" by Brahms; "O del mio dolce ardor" by Gluck; Menotti's "The Black Swan" from The Medium; "Porgi, amor" by Mozart from Le Nozze Di Figaro; Purcell's "When I am Laid in Earth" from Dido and Aeneas; and Bizet's "L'amour est un oiseau rebelle" from Carmen.

Daughter of John and Nancy Bryant of McKinney, Texas, Anna studied music since age 13 and is a member of Austin College's A Cappella Choir. "Musical performance has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember," she said. "I can't imagine a life without it, and I look forward to keeping music as a part of my life after Austin College."

Anna is completing a major in history and a minor in environmental studies.

Evan is a member of the A Cappella Choir and Consort. He also is a member of the College Pep Band. He will present another recital on Saturday, April 6, to showcase his original compositions.
