UNO Music Professor to Perform at Carnegie Hall Jan. 27
Omaha - Professor Teresa Dody from the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Department of Music will perform at New York's Carnegie Hall on Sunday, Jan. 27. Dody's performance is the first prize for winning the Barry Alexander International Vocal Competition.
The Barry Alexander International Vocal Competition is an entrée into the world of vocal performance for those pursuing a professional operatic career. Barry Alexander is the president and CEO of Alexander & Associates, a public relations firm he launched after a 20-year career as an opera singer.
Winners can participate in "The Business of Music," a seminar with managers, agents, publicists and recording industry executives answering questions and offering advice on pursuing a professional career.
Dody joined the UNO faculty in 2006 as an assistant professor of music. Majoring in voice and music education, she received her bachelor of music degree from the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. She received a master of music degree in vocal performance from Wichita State University, and is completing a doctorate of musical arts in vocal performance, also at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music.
She has studied voice with Dr. William Lavonis, Barbara Honn, Dr. George Gibson, Alan Held and Sharon Sweet. In competitions, she has been a winner of many prestigious awards including: the Stewart Opera Grant, Naftzger Young Artist, the Louise D. McMahon International Competition, Metropolitan Opera Guild Regional Finalist, Columbus Opera Competition, Center for Contemporary Opera Competition and the Meistersinger competition in Graz, Austria.
In 2001, Dody made her Carnegie Hall debut in the New York Vocal Artists Millennium Vocal Gala. She has also performed with the Opera Theatre in Lucca, Italy; American Institute for Musical Study in Graz, Austria; Cincinnati Opera; Des Moines Metro Opera; Whitewater Opera; Kentucky Opera and Opera Kansas. Dody performed the European premiere of "The Dialogue of St. Francis" and "St. Clare Oratorio" in Assisi, Italy; and the American premiere of Lars Erik-Larsson's "A God Disguised" with Håkan Hagegård and the premiere "Baritone of Sweden." Upcoming performances include a return to New York for a Carnegie Hall recital and Rome Festival next summer in Italy.
