Husband, father, and baritone Graham Anduri, PhD is an ambitious performer, director and teacher who recently joined the music faculty at CMU in the fall of 2015. During his first year at CMU, Anduri has taught voice lessons, directed the Opera Workshop and Opera Scenes classes, directed the CMU Women’s Choir, re-instated the CMU Men’s Choir, and added two new Advanced Diction courses in Romance languages, and German/Russian to the Vocal Performance curriculum. He has also been heard locally in over a dozen performance productions ranging from operas, to solo recitals, concert solos and choral masterworks.
Anduri, PhD, is passionate about utilizing music as a vehicle for improving the world, and believes that singing is an important medium through which to create and foster bonds between people and cultures. To those ends, he recently organized and completed a tour of Romanian churches, schools, orphanages and prisons with the Missions of Mobile Chamber Choir from the University of Mobile. He also views opera directing as another medium through which to reach people. As such, he has been directing operas, musicals and scenes productions around the country since 2008.
