Distinguished Major Voice Recital
February 17, 2024 - 8:00pm
Old Cabell Hall

Elise Ebert will perform her Distinguished Major Voice Recital on Saturday, February 17th, 2024 at 8:00pm in Old Cabell Hall.

The Department of Music presents Elise Ebert’s Distinguished Major Recital on February 17th, 2024 at 8 PM in Old Cabell Hall. Her recital program will feature pieces by Mozart, Debussy, Barber, Strauss II, and more. Elise will be accompanied by Karen Dalton (piano) and Alex Suh (piano).

Elise Ebert is a fourth-year student from Dunn Loring, VA studying Music and Speech Communication Disorders. Elise began singing at only four years old with the World Children’s Choir and started private lessons in fourth grade. Always having had a love for classical music, Elise continued to study opera and art song repertoire throughout high school, having the opportunity to play roles including Pamina in an abridged production of Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte, Josephine in Gilbert and Sullivan’s H.M.S. Pinafore, and the Sandman/Dew Fairy in an abridged production of Humperdick’s Hansel and Gretel. Under the direction of Sondra Harnes, her wonderful private voice teacher, she began to develop her coloratura technique and expand her classical repertoire.

Upon coming to UVA in the Fall of 2020, Elise has been a member of the University Singers, taken voice lessons with the fantastic Pamela Beasley, and served as music director for the New Dominions, UVA’s oldest all-gender a cappella group. In Fall 2022, Elise traveled to Vienna, Austria for a semester to study music in the classical city capital of the world. In Vienna, she performed a solo recital, which included some of the pieces performed at this recital, studied German language and Lieder, and immersed herself in the culture of the city, seeing over 10 operas in her four months there. 

Next year, Elise will be attending UVA’s Post-baccalaureate Premedical program to prepare to attend medical school with the dream of becoming an Ear-Nose-Throat doctor, so she can help rehabilitate and preserve the vocal health of singers like herself.

This recital is supported by the Charles S. Roberts Scholarship Fund. Established in 2004 by the generosity of Mr. Alan Y. Roberts ('64) and Mrs. Sally G. Roberts, the Charles S. Roberts Scholarship Fund underwrites the private lessons and recital costs for undergraduate music majors giving a recital in their fourth year as part of a distinguished major program in music. To see all of our Distinguished Major Recitals please visit https://music.virginia.edu/student-recitals.
