Music Department Celebrates 10th Annual Poetry and Song Program

10 Years of Poetry and Song

MSU's 10th Poetry and Song Collaboration Program sponsored by the Department of Music featured clarinetist Sheri Falcone, pianist Karen Murphy and vocalist Corinne Reece, along with many other faculty and student vocalists. Murphy, instructor and coordinator of collaborative piano, and Nancy D. Hargrove, William L. Giles Distinguished Professor Emerita of English, co-founded the interdisciplinary program of poetry and song in 2008. This year’s program was a memorial to tenor Guy A. Hargrove, a 25-year member of the MSU music department, who served for 16 years as conductor and music director of the Starkville-MSU Symphony Orchestra.
