Speaker Topics: 

I am the new director of Opera/Musical Theatre at ULM and have more than 25 years directing and producing at a number of universities, including running the world renown opera program at Indiana University for nine years. During the summers I teach in Italy (Tuscany) and Germany, and I have directed in England and Brazil. I am the author of two textbooks about acting/singing in opera, and I enjoy talking with groups about opera and musical theatre-especially people that are not that well acquainted with opera. I am directing and producing a Mozart opera, The Marriage of Figaro, for ULM in November, and I would love to drum up enthusiasm for community interest. I could also provide some student singers from the cast.
I will also be taking children's opera into the public schools, and I would love to talk about music/theatre education in public schools.
