The Board of Directors is pleased to announce the hiring of the new Ovation West Executive Director Dr. Graham Anduri, effective January 1, 2023.
Dr. Anduri has a Doctorate of Musical Arts in Vocal Performance and Pedagogy from The University of Southern Mississippi. However, he was born and raised in Fairplay, Colorado and comes to us from Grand Junction, where he was recently the Director of Voice Studies at Colorado Mesa University. Following his time at CMU, he and his wife, Dr. Stefanie Anduri, co-founded Sing for Your Lives, LLC., a corporation dedicated to teaching transformative singing to a global clientele of emerging professional musicians. Graham is the Managing Director of the International Performing Arts Institute, where he has directed young artists across America and around the globe. He has previously been the Director of West Slope Operations for Art Song Colorado, a non-profit dedicated to musical storytelling through the synthesis of music and poetry. Graham is a dedicated vocal performance artist and conductor, operatic director, music educator, and entrepreneur. Graham shares our goal of producing transformative music and musical theater for our community, and we are delighted to have a leader of his caliber at the helm of our wonderful organization!
Graham, Stefanie (also an amazing musician!) and their two children will be moving here from Grand Junction, where we all look forward to making them a treasured part of Ovation West Performing Arts.
We hope you are as excited about the future of our great organization as we are!
