Mitchell Manlapig has been named the 2019-20 Outstanding Senior in the Division of Music. The Division is part of the Warren M. Angell College of Fine Arts at OBU.
Awards for outstanding seniors in all Colleges and Divisions are typically presented during a special awards chapel at the conclusion of the spring semester. With the awards chapel event not being held this year due to the University’s move to distance learning, these students are instead being recognized through an announcement via the University website and social media channels.
The outstanding senior in Music is the student who has excelled as a performer, who has consistently exhibited the highest standards of scholarship and who best represents the ideals of the University.
Manlapig is a double major in musical arts with an emphasis in piano and in psychology. He serves as the accompanist for the Bison Glee Club as well as the pianist for the OBU Symphonic Winds when needed. He has performed as a soloist in OBU’s annual Concerto-Aria concert and as the principal percussionist of the OBU/Shawnee Community Orchestra. He is also a member of OBU’s percussion ensemble and is an instructor in OBU’s Music Preparatory Department.
