SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – Tori Helton will perform her senior clarinet recital on Friday, April 22, at 7:00 p.m. in the Barnett Fine Arts Center at Evangel University.

Admission is free, and the public is invited to attend.

Helton will be accompanied during her recital by Dr. Linda Ligate, professor of piano, as well as a duet with Dr. Sheri Slater, adjunct clarinet professor.

“I have been looking forward to my senior recital ever since I was a freshman,” Helton said. “I’m excited to get to share the music I’ve been preparing with family and friends, and I’m also excited to perform a duet with my clarinet professor, Dr. Slater. She has been a mentor and encourager to me during my time here, and I admire her so much!”
