MELBOURNE, FLA.—The university’s Concert Choir course will be directed by Eliza Dopira this fall, announced Robert Taylor, head of the Florida Institute of Technology Department of Humanities and Communication. This is a new position.
A classically trained vocalist, Dopira has performed with opera companies and symphonies throughout Florida and the Mid-Atlantic region. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Vocal Performance from Florida State University, a master’s degree in Voice and a Performance Diploma in Opera from the Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University.
“Her expertise in the solo, symphonic, and chamber music repertoire will be a true asset to the blossoming Florida Tech music program,” said Taylor. A busy performance semester is expected for students, and additional workshops and guest lecturers are planned for Florida Tech in the coming year.
