Logan Butler Performs Senior Recital at UC


Williamsburg, Ky.—University of the Cumberlands’ (UC) senior Logan Shearer Butler (Albany, Ky.) performed his Senior Recital on November 14th in the Nell Moore Recital Hall. Butler played nine pieces on the saxophone with Kay Dawn McFarland accompanying him on the piano.

Butler’s playing filled the recital hall for the evening. He performed three pieces from “Tableaux de Provence” by Paule Maurice (1910-1967), three pieces from “Concerto pour Saxophone Alto” by Pierre Max Dubois (1930-1995), “Concerto En Mi Bèmol pour Saxophone Alto” by Alexander Glazunov (1865-1936), “Pièces Caratèristques en Forme de Suite” by Pierre Max Dubois, and “Yakety Sax” by Boots Randolph (1927-2007).

Butler is a student of Mr. David Threlkeld and the recital was presented in partial fulfillment of the Bachelor of Music Education degree.

“Logan is a very fine musician,” said Threlkeld. “He plays well technically, but also musically. He has participated in many ensembles, including concert band, marching band, jazz ensemble, saxophone quartet, flute choir, and clarinet choir. He has assumed a leadership role in each group.”

The recital lasted about an hour with a reception following. Friends, family, and professors congratulated Butler afterwards for a job well done.

Butler is a Music Education major. He has plans to become a teacher upon graduation.

“He plans to become a teacher,” said Threlkeld proudly. “He has done much to prepare himself for his future career.”

Located in Williamsburg, Ky., University of the Cumberlands is an institution of regional distinction, which currently offers four undergraduate degrees in more than 40 major fields of study; 10 pre-professional programs; ten graduate degrees distributed over eight areas, including two doctorates and seven master’s degrees; certifications in education; and online programs.
