Ouachita Baptist University’s Division of Music will host a faculty recital Tuesday, Sept. 17, at 7:30 p.m. featuring Dr. Margaret Garrett, soprano, and Mr. David Stanley, countertenor. The recital, which is free and open to the public, will be held in McBeth Recital Hall of Mabee Fine Arts Center.
Garrett, assistant professor of music, and Stanley, instructor of music, will be assisted by Dr. Ouida Keck, Addie Mae Maddox Professor of Music at OBU, on piano and Dr. Kay McAfee, retired professor of organ and music history at Henderson State University, on organ.
“Not only is this a good opportunity that gives the faculty a chance to perform together, but it is also an excellent opportunity for both the student body and community at large to see and hear their faculty in ‘performance mode,’” Stanley said. “It’s an opportunity to literally practice and demonstrate what we preach in the studio!”
Garrett added that the recital provides “students an opportunity to see and hear the high level of artistry achieved by the faculty. It’s quite fun for us as faculty to have the opportunity to perform together.”
This is the first time Garrett and Stanley have performed together since Stanley joined the Ouachita faculty in 2011. “It is exciting for me to have the opportunity to sing with a countertenor, as I have never before had the chance to do so,” Garrett noted. “It is a rare voice type, and OBU students and community will have the opportunity to experience hearing a countertenor firsthand.”
The recital, titled “From the Profane to the Sacred,” will consist of Francis Poulenc’s song cycle “Le Bestiaire” and Theron Kirk’s song cycle “Prayers from the Ark.” According to Stanley, “both of these song sets are vivid, engaging descriptions of animals – from camels to gold fish to dolphins to goats to butterflies.”
The recital will conclude with Giovanni Battista Pergolesi’s “Stabat Mater.” “Although this work was very popular at the time it was written, it is rarely performed today,” Garrett said. “The way that Pergolesi depicts Christ’s passion and suffering through music is breathtaking.”

Ouachita Baptist University Career Services will host a Student Internship Panel on Wednesday, Sept. 18, from 12-12:45 p.m. at the Ouachita Commons Alumni Room for all students of any major. The panel consists of current Ouachita students who will share their experiences from their particular internship. Interested students may bring their lunch to the seminar.
Students will be helping students with a guided Q&A by Lauren Land, director of Ouachita Career Services. “Internships are important and take time planning to make happen,” said Land. A lot of companies’ application process is early in the year, making it important to begin exploring internship options now.
“Internships are extremely valuable when thinking about pursing a career,” said David Day, a senior business administration and management major from Highlands Ranch, Co., who worked as a Northwestern Mutual Financial Representative Intern. “It gives you a little taste of what it can be like in the field you want to pursue.”
Not only do internships look good on a résumé, but offer hands-on work experience. “I learned valuable information this summer from my experience that you can never learn in a classroom,” Day said.
The panelists will provide advice on how to find, apply and succeed in an internship. “Not one of the panel members had the same experience,” explained Day. “But all members will have stories and information that can help students realize what type of internship might be right for them.”
Other panelists include: Tori Abellera, a senior mass communications major from Garland, Texas (Stone Ward, Little Rock); Samuel Cushman, a junior mass communications major from Springdale (FUNimation, Dallas, Texas); Jeremy Dixon, a junior Christian media and communications major from Benton (Long Hollow Baptist Church, Nashville, Tenn.); Lindsey Fowler, a senior political science major from Arkadelphia (Arkansas Business, Little Rock); Ashley Glover, a senior biology major from Stuttgart (Arkansas Children’s Hospital, Little Rock); Meg Hart, a senior accounting major from Little Rock (Windstream, Little Rock); and David Sypult, a senior accounting major from Rogers (WalMart Corporate Office, Bentonville).
