Kari, a recent graduate of the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, will be presenting a final solo recital this coming Sunday, August 1st at Faith Lutheran in Farragut, Tennessee at 4pm. This recital, free of charge, will feature music of Edvard Grieg and other French works. Josie Campbell, a recent graduate of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, will be attending the Royal Academy as a Marshall Scholar. As one of 46 American students granted the prestigious award and only the third UTK student to receive the award since its inception in 1953, she joins a highly achieving class of graduate students bound for the United Kingdom.
