ABERDEEN, S.D. – Northern State University students Anthony Rohr and Steven Zimoski will hold their senior recital on Feb. 23. The event, which will start at 3 p.m. in Krikac Auditorium, is free and open to the public.
Zimoski, a music student with a minor in business and entrepreneurial studies, plays the saxophone, flute and clarinet. He will perform “Phoenix” by Ryo Noda, “Fantaisie Pastorale Hongroise 0p. 26” by Francois Doppler, “Aria” by Eugene Bozza, and “Gypsy Airs” by Pablo de Sarasate. He will be accompanied by NSU's Dr. William Wieland.
Rohr is a music student with a vocal emphasis. He’ll be singing pieces from Handel’s “Messiah,” a selection of Ravel’s Greek folk songs, and opera arias, among others. Mary Marion will accompany.
Zimoski grew up in Mobridge and graduated in 2009. The son of Mike and Carol Zimoski, he came to NSU intending to pursue a business degree, but ultimately yielded to his passion for music and performance. He hopes to continue his education and earn a master’s degree in multiple woodwinds.
Rohr hails from both Lefor and Dickinson, N.D. The son of Mick and Tori Rohr, he graduated in 2008. After meeting with a couple of NSU’s music professors, he “knew that the quality of teaching at Northern must be great.” Rohr would someday like to sing opera professionally.
