HARTSVILLE, S.C.–April 29, 2012 – Ashley West will perform in her senior recital, accompanied by pianist Kim Roberts, a music teacher at Hartsville Middle School, at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, May 6 in the Hannah Lide Coker Recital Hall.

West is a soprano and a music major with a concentration in musical theater and studies voice with Serena Hill-LaRoache, assistant professor of music.  West has acted in roles in the musical productions such as “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” and the recent musical, “Spring Awakening.”  West has also been involved with the Chamber Choir and the Coker Singers since her freshman year, and has been an officer in Coker Singers since her sophomore year and became the president this year.   Last summer, she studied in Rome, Italy with “Operafestival di Roma” and will be attending New York University Steinhardt in the fall to pursue a master of music degree.

“In my four years at Coker, I have had the opportunity to learn from so many incredible people,” said West.  “My professors, friends, and family have all inspired me to become a better performer, and I have developed a passion for making music that will last a lifetime.”

“I am looking forward to Ashley's senior voice recital,” said William Carswell, associate professor of music and chair of the department of dance, music and theater.  “She has excelled as a music major in all areas of study, and we will, no doubt, see those skills displayed in her performance.  Ashley has prepared well not only for this capstone experience, but also for graduate study in the fall at NYU.”

Coker College offers a major in music education as well as music with concentrations in voice, piano and musical theater. Coker also offers a major in theater with concentrations in performance or technical theater, and a major in dance with concentrations in performance/choreography and movement analysis/therapies.

This concert is free and open to the public.  For more information about performing arts programs at Coker College, contact Wes Atkinson at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or (843) 383-8050.
