USA student percussionist Jared Messinger successfully completed his Senior Percussion Recital on Friday, May 1, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. in the Laidlaw Performing Arts Center Recital Hall.  Music included works by Harold Arlen, Pat Jacobs, Chad Floyd, and Messinger even performed a piece of his own titled, Locked, written in 2017.  The concert was presented in front of an empty house due to coronavirus protections, and all concerned were maintaining proper social distancing per university and local guidelines.
This recital was the culmination of Messinger'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.
Jared Messinger's final senior recital was presented in partial fulfillment of the degree Bachelor of Music with Concentration in Music Education – Instrumental.  Messinger is a student of Luis Rivera.
