Mississippi University for Women held its fall recital on Tuesday, Nov. 5, in Poindexter Hall. The recital spotlighted a variety of talents from majors in music at the university. The night was comprised of several singing and brass performances. Biraj Adhikari, a junior music major with a concentration on composition, had two movements performed for his piece “I’m Back” at the recital.
“Everybody in this room is an artist,” Marshall Ramsey said to the crowd of Mississippi University for Women alumni and current students. “Every day we start with a blank canvas. Our attitudes and our efforts are our brush strokes, and by the end of that day we have created a new painting.”
New Mississippi University for Women Police Chief Randy Vibrock says that making the campus safe is his first priority, and he is humbled by the encouragement he’s received from those at the university.
