For his senior recital, singer and performance major Michael Bligdon reflects on his past four years at Berklee College of Music and the music that has shaped the artist he is today. He will be performing in a wide variety of styles, including swing, funk, New Orleans second line, Latin, and odd meters, among others. Bligdon, who is completing his degree this summer, is excited to be sharing the stage with his quartet, which includes talented musicians from all over the world, and with special guests.
