Concert to celebrate the career of Dr. Roma Prindle

Roma Prindle mugshotA celebration of Professor of Music Dr. Roma Prindle's 30 years of service with Morehead State University is scheduled for Friday, March 3, at 7:30 p.m.

Prindle and more than 40 alumni will present a concert at Jesus Our Savior Catholic Church, 315 Battson Avenue in Morehead. The show is free and open to the public.

"I am thrilled that so many of my former students will be returning to be a part of this event," Prindle said. "A couple of years ago, I had a big birthday, and a bunch of them showed up to celebrate with me. When I realized that my 30th year of teaching at MSU was approaching, I decided to extend the celebration with an even bigger reunion."

Prindle said there are many things she enjoys about teaching, but what she enjoys most is watching her students develop.

"It is so satisfying to see them grow into young artists who are serious about the profession. It's also fulfilling to know that even those who don't go into the music profession benefit from the process and discipline of voice study in many different ways," Prindle said.

The program for the evening will include operatic arias from Gounod's "Faust," Mozart's "Magic Flute" and "Marriage of Figaro," Händel's "Rodelinda," Bizet's "Pearl Fishers," Puccini's "Tosca," and Carlisle Floyd's great American opera, "Susannah." Songs by Samuel Barber, Claude Debussy, Madeleine Dring, Ben Moore, Tom Cipullo, Edith Piaf and excerpts from classic musical theater will also be presented. The evening will conclude with "Make Our Garden Grow," from Leonard Bernstein's opus based on the Voltaire work from the Age of Enlightenment, "Candide."

Prindle said she has no plans of stopping any time soon.

"Every day, every lesson is a fresh start in building the physical and the communicative aspect of singing. It never gets old. I'm not sure I'll ever retire," she said.
