Tenor Steven Tharp and 100 Sedalia string students perform at Sedalia Symphony


Tenor Steven Tharp, assistant professor of voice at the University of Missouri-Columbia, sings “You’d be Surprised” by Irving Berlin at the Sedalia Symphony performance Monday evening at the Heckart Performing Arts Center at Smith-Cotton High School. Tharp was the guest performer for the performance. This is the Sedalia Symphony’s 81st season.


Accompanying tenor Steven Tharp on the piano during the Sedalia Symphony performance Monday night was Anthony Hernandez, left. Tharp began his performance on a more serious note with “O del mio amato ben” by Stevano Donaudy and progressed to more lighted-heart music including “A Word on My Ear,” about being tone deaf, by Michael Flanders and Donald Swann.


Sedalia string students were invited to play two selections with the Sedalia Symphony Monday evening at the SCHS Heckart Performing Arts Center. Sedalia Symphony Society President Betty Sue Viterna said there were approximately 100 students from Sedalia School District 200 and from private instruction participating in the concert. “These are our future symphony students,” she told the audience.


Sedalia string students played “American Fiddle Triptych” arranged by Tim McCarrish (1962-2012) and “Freedom Finale-A Patriotic Salute” arranged by Michael Story, during the Monday evening performance of the Sedalia Symphony at the SCHS Heckart Performing Arts Center. “It’s good to see strings are alive in Sedalia,” Symphony Conductor Gwendolyn Kappelman said.
