Arden Hopkin, head of vocal studies at the Brigham Young University School of Music, will present “Swan Song,” a recital of vocal chamber music, Friday, Jan. 31, at 7:30 p.m. in the Madsen Recital Hall. Admission is free

Accompanied by Baraba Allen, piano, Hopkin will perform selections from Purcell's "Harmonia Sacra," Debussy's "Trois chansons de France," "Cinco Canciones Negras" by the Catalan composer Xavier Montsalvatge, a set of songs in Hebrew by Max Helfman and selections from Schubert's "Schwannengesang." The program will conclude with a set of American spirituals.

Hopkin has been coordinating the vocal division at BYU since 1998. He teaches studio voice and vocal pedagogy in addition to serving as a clinician across the country and internationally. He earned a doctoral degree from the Eastman School of Music, a master’s degree from the University of North Texas and a bachelor’s degree from BYU.

Allen served as opera coach and staff accompanist in the California State University system before returning to Utah. She continues to accompany in recitals and to coach opera with the BYU Opera program and the Utah Lyric Opera.
