Last summer, senior music major Dana Hunter worked as a management assistant for Makin’ Music Inc., a music publishing, production and consulting company located on Nashville’s famed Music Row. She not only created set lists for performances and managed shows at the popular venue, Tootsies, but she had the opportunity to perform as well. Although the songstress studies classical music at Xavier, there’s no shortage of country tunes in her repertoire.
For her senior recital, the Noblesville, Ind., native is giving a completely country music concert on May 5 on the campus green. “I want to give the audience a Nashville experience, so I will be performing many songs that are popular in the Nashville venues,” she says. “I will also be performing some original music I was introduced to while working with songwriters this past summer, as well as some songs I have written myself.”
In addition to her singing talents, Hunter is also a member of the women’s swim team, holds four school records, and is the co-president of the student-athlete advisory committee.
