ABERDEEN, S.D. – Northern State University student Tabitha Schmidt will have her senior recital at 1 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 27, in the Johnson Fine Arts Center Harvey and Cynthia Jewett Theater.

Schmidt, a percussionist, will perform “Suite for Timpani” by David Mancini, “Chakalaka” by Francisco Perez, “Prelude and Blues” by Ney Rosauro and “2+1” by Ivan Trevino. Also performing will be Sara Krebsbach; Matej Cip and Dylan Unruh (duet); Adam Henning, Aldous Ulvog, and Dr. Travis Netzer (trio); and NSU alum Luke Bergjord.

Schmidt, the daughter of Alan and Brenda Schmidt, grew up in Huron, graduating from Huron High School in 2015.

At Northern, she is majoring in instrumental and vocal music education and has studied with Dr. Terry Beckler.

“I wanted a school that had a wonderful music department, and Dr. Beckler was the professor that sought me out during my high school years,” Schmidt said about her decision to attend Northern. “NSU is a family school with my aunt, uncle and sister attending as well, so it was the perfect fit.”

Schmidt will graduate from Northern in May 2020. Her future plans are to teach around the Aberdeen area or continue into higher education and find a Residence Life position.
