Drury faculty are increasingly involved with the Springfield Regional Opera. Jim Davidson has been appointed Chorus Master, responsible for preparing the opera chorus for all MainStage productions. Dr. Davidson was also recently appointed the new Music Director of the Boys Choir of Springfield and serves as director of choral activities and music education at Drury.
Christopher Koch has been appointed Executive Director of SRO, of which he is also Music Director. "We are ecstatic to have Christopher's expertise at the opera," says Mary Aiken, SRO board president. "We are in a period of exponential growth and extremely excited for the 2017-18 opera season."
Stephen Bomgardner continues to perform with SRO as well, playing Roderigo in the Springfield premiere of Verdi's Otello in October 2017.
