SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Evangel University’s Esther Malone will perform her senior voice recital on March 3 at 7:30 p.m. in the Barnett Recital Hall.

Admission is free and the public is invited to attend. For her recital, she will be accompanied by Carol Wilson, retired music instructor at Evangel.

Malone is the daughter of Howard and Melanie Malone of Waynesville, Mo., and she will graduate this spring with a music industry degree.

“The music industry major at Evangel prepares students for positions in the rapidly evolving world of music business, recording engineer and other music technology,” said Jason Salazar, assistant professor of music. “The program blends music, business and communication courses with hands-on experience using state-of-the-art technology.”
