Lauren Setterdahl hosts senior voice recital

Pella — Central College senior Lauren Setterdahl will host a senior voice recital on Friday, April 27 at 7:30 p.m. in Cox-Snow Recital Hall, located on Central’s campus. The program duration will be approximately 40 minutes, with a complimentary reception in the adjacent music building lobby to follow.

Setterdahl, a mezzo soprano, will perform pieces that cover a wide timeline of musical history and background, from the 16th century through the last third of the 20th century. She will sing a total of 11 songs, including selections in English, Italian, French, and German. Setterdahl will be showcasing recognizable composers such as George Frideric Handel, John Dowland, Robert Schumann, Jean Paul Egide Martini, Gabriel Fauré and Edmund Goulding. The program also includes musical theater selections taken from the productions “Camelot” and “The Sound of Music,” as well as a lighthearted pop favorite written by Marcy Heisler and Zina Goldrich.

Central students host recitals for a variety of reasons. Many music students give a sophomore or junior recital in addition to a senior recital, either to better prepare themselves for a graduate school program in music performance or a future in the freelance music profession.

Although Setterdahl, who is completing a music minor rather than a major, is not required to give a departmental senior recital, she elected to do so because she has been actively involved in voice lessons and the Central College A Cappella Choir since her freshman year, as well as the smaller vocal ensemble, Chamber Singers, since her sophomore year.

“I felt that a senior voice recital would be a very fitting way to conclude and encapsulate my voice study at Central,” said Setterdahl. “I sincerely hope community members can join me for this exciting occasion.”

Cox-Snow Recital Hall is located on the north side of University Street, and parking is available across the street. A campus map can be found at

The recital is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Debbie Abel, music department secretary, at 641-628-5236 or

Additionally, Setterdahl can be reached at 515-571-3517 or with any questions.
