Drs. Vicki and Thomas King performed at DePauw University School of Music on February 1, 2016. Thomas has been teaching there since Fall of 2015 and will continue this spring and the entire school year of 2016-2017.  The Kings have been performing together since they met in graduate school at Indiana University in 1968.
Among the repertoire for the recital are songs by Indiana composers, Ned Rorem and David Baker. Also included are three DePauw premiers, songs by Al Benner and a song by Libby Larsen, commissioned by Dr. Vicki King for her husband on the occasion of his 65th birthday.

Official Announcements of TK University Teaching 2015

December 17, 2015 at 7:00 am | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

I was engaged to teach voice at the prestigious Jacobs School of Music, Indiana University-Bloomington, for the SPRING semester of 2015 and I continued for FALL 2015 and in SPRING 2016.  I was Visiting Professor of Voice, substituting for two voice professors on sabbatical. To be teaching at my own alma mater (from 1968-70) was thrilling indeed.

FALL of 2015 I taught Vocal Literature and German Diction for Singers at DePauw University School of Music and in SPRING 2016, I taught Vocal Literature and French Diction.  In FALL 2016 and SPRING 2017, I will be teaching the same courses AND I will teach a few private voice students as well.
