Winner of Belle and Lynum Jackson Competition to present recital



Yuhao Zhou, in collaboration with Marshall University piano faculty member Dr. Henning Vauth, will give his senior recital in Marshall’s Smith Recital Hall at 3 p.m. Saturday, April 29. The program will include works by Niccolò Paganini, Dmitri Shostakovich, Ludwig van Beethoven and Henryk Wieniawski.

The Belle and Lynum Jackson Competition rewards the best student performer in Marshall’s School of Music with a cash prize and a sponsored recital. This performance serves as the winner’s recital, as well as fulfilling the capstone requirements for a B.F.A. in violin performance.

Zhou, a native of Lishui, China, has been studying violin performance with Dr. Elizabeth Reed Smith for the past four years. He said he will pursue graduate studies at Lynn University upon graduation.
