USA student percussionist Kevin Newsome successfully completed his Senior Percussion Recital on Sunday, May 3, 2020 at 5:30 p.m. in the Laidlaw Performing Arts Center Recital Hall.  Assisting in this performance with Newsome was USA faculty pianist Doreen Lee.  The concert was presented in front of an empty house due to coronavirus protections, and all musicians performing in this concert maintained proper social distancing per university and local guidelines.
 
This recital was the culmination of Newsome's time as a student at South Alabama.  As an undergraduate performer, he was a key member of several elite ensembles, including the USA Wind Ensemble, USA Symphony Band and several iterations of the USA Percussion Ensemble.
 
Kevin Newsome's final senior recital was presented in partial fulfillment of the degree Bachelor of Music with Concentration in Performance – Instrumental.  He is a student of Luis Rivera.  His recital program appears below.
