Theatre Faculty "I like that entering MSU freshman can get right to work on Theatre and Dance projects. There is a great ensemble atmosphere from the minute students walk in the door. Often, almost the entire program is involved in a single project: a dance concert, a musical, or student-directed plays."

Randall Hawes has been bass trombonist with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) since winning the position in 1985. Hawes began his relationship with the Northwestern University Bienen School of Music in 2004. He has taught master classes and performed as a soloist, orchestral and chamber musician in Australia, Asia, Europe, and throughout North America. Hawes received a bachelor's degree in music education from Central Michigan University, where he studied with William Rivard. From 1980 to 1982, after graduating, he was a member of the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra, American Wind Symphony, and the New York Harlem Opera Ensemble. In 1985, after two years on the road with the Woody Herman Orchestra, Hawes was awarded a fellowship to the Tanglewood Institute for the summer, after which he won the DSO position. In addition to the DSO, he has performed with orchestras including the Pittsburgh, Boston, and Chicago Symphonies, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the Grand Teton Music Festival Orchestra. He first performed with the World Orchestra for Peace in 1995 when Sir George Solti invited him to help celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the United Nations. His association with WOP continues with Solti's successor, Valery Gergiev, and has included multiple international tours and recordings. Chamber music groups with which Hawes performs frequently: DSO Octet, Cuttime Players, Chicago's Music of the Baroque, Chicago Chamber Musicians, and musicians of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Hawes can be heard on recordings with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra under Leonard Slatkin, Neeme Jarvi and Gunther Herbig and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra under Sir George Solti. Hawes has recorded two cd's; an all Russian program titled Melodrama and a cd of American music titled Barn Burner. Pianist Kathryn Goodson collaborated with Mr. Hawes on both recordings.

Theatre Major, Covington, KY"Morehead State University is a place where you can feel free to embrace who you are and enhance the talents you have been given. MSU is a place that is safe, yet will challenge you and make you the best you can be. I feel that, just in my short time here, I have grown immensely and can't wait to see how much I continue to grow in my remaining years in my home away from home."
