Hanna Flewelling is a music education major from Scarborough. Along with the heavy workload of a music education major, Hanna has placed a special emphasis on performance while here at USM. She plans to teach in public schools after graduation, and possibly abroad such as in Japan or the UK. She envisions herself teaching middle schoolers, because "they have spunk."
The program will include an interesting combination of modern saxophone works as well as what may be to some, an unexpected Beethoven piece. We all love the sounds of the saxophone that we hear flowing through contemporary music, but few of us have heard this distinctive sound playing solo classical music. For this program, both alto and soprano saxophones will be featured.
An avid home chocolatier, Hanna has created many of the delicacies she will serve at the reception following the recital.
Student recitals are FREE and open to the public.

An alumna of Gorham High School, Jennifer has grown up in Gorham all her life. She will be graduating from the University of Southern Maine's School of Music in the town that she loves the most.

This program will feature both classical and musical theater selections; Jennifer has performed and loved both genres throughout her musical career. She has been seen on the stage performing in USM's opera workshop as Mary Warren in The Crucible and Gretel in Hansel and Gretel, performing in the Maine and Boston Musical Theater NATS competitions, where she has won both second and third place.
Jennifer will be assisted by Jenna Guiggey, Christina Zahn, Virginia Hudak, Amanda Bottieri, Jimmy McDonald, Jesse Wakeman, Kellie Moody, and Nathaniel Gowen.
In her own words, Jennifer says "I am truly thankful and honored to be sharing the stage in some great songs with my dear friends and fellow musicians . I'm also excited about my choice for the closing number as Little Women is one of my favorite musicals."
