Jack Kehoe

Performance Concentration Recital
March 30, 2024 - 8:00pm
Old Cabell Hall

Jack Kehoe, Tenor, will perform a solo recital on Saturday, March 30, 2024 at 8pm in the Old Cabell Hall. His recital is presented in fulfillment of the requirements for the Performance Concentration, of which he is a member. His recital will present art song selections by Fauré, Brahms, and Quilter, arias by Handel and Donizetti, as well as selections from musical theater works. Jack will be accompanied by Karen Dalton on the piano, and soprano Elise Ebert will be featured on a duet.


Jack Kehoe, born in Washington, D.C., is double majoring in Computer Science and Music in the Performance Concentration. Jack has held a passion for music his whole life: he began playing the piano at five years old, and soon after picked up guitar as well. Throughout middle and high school, Jack sang in choirs and musicals, having the opportunity to perform as Marius in Claude-Michel Schönberg’s Les Misérables, Jack Kelly in Alan Menken’s Newsies: The Musical, and the Wolf/Cinderella’s Prince in Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods. He also was placed as the number one tenor two in the North Carolina Honors Chorus his senior year of high school. While he had many extraordinary voice teachers and choir directors, Jack didn’t find a consistent vocal tutor until college.

Since arriving at UVA, Jack has been a member of choir groups such as the University Singers and the Chamber Singers, performed with the musical theater groups First Year Players and the Virginia Players, joined the Miller Arts Scholars, and served as music director for the New Dominions, UVA’s oldest all-gender a cappella group. Jack has especially enjoyed his time taking voice lessons with the incredible Pamela Beasley, where he has expanded his vocal repertoire by taking on art songs from the baroque, classical, and romantic periods. In the performance concentration, he has had the opportunity to perform these pieces and get feedback from peers and Professor Daniel Sender.

Next year, Jack plans on attending NYU Steinhardt's Vocal Performance/Vocal Pedagogy dual degree program. He hopes to either perform professionally or become a voice teacher, inspired by the incredible professors at UVA.

The Performance Concentration is a two-year program within the BA in music available to rising third-year students. In the 3rd and 4th years, a student may work towards a Concentration in Music, an official credit on a student transcript, which requires an additional 21 performance credits in addition to the standard B.A. in Music requirements. Students in the Concentration will work with expert performance faculty in a Performance Seminar, they will receive some free accompanist time, they receive Lesson Scholarships for the duration of the two years of study, and they perform a 4th-year recital.

The Concentration in Music Performance recognizes significant accomplishment in musical performance by majors in the Department of Music. The program serves students who are interested in developing their instrumental or vocal performance skills beyond the level required for the B.A. in Music. DMP students and College Arts Scholars may also earn the Performance Concentration, which provides more intensive performance training than either of those programs.

Old Cabell Hall is located on the south end of UVA's historic lawn, directly opposite the Rotunda (map). Parking is available in the Central Grounds parking garage on Emmet Street, in the C1 parking lot off McCormick Road, and in the parking lots at the UVA Corner. 

All programs are subject to change.
