Elizabeth Lepock, soprano, holds a BMus in Voice Performance and Music history from Wilfrid Laurier University, and an MMus and DMA in Voice Performance from the University of Western Ontario. Over the course of her doctoral studies, in addition to honing her performance and pedagogy skills, Dr. Lepock also pursued ground-breaking interdisciplinary research into muscle tension voice disorders. Her passion for music includes a voracious desire to learn, a love for performing, and a nurturing attitude towards her students – while always attempting to challenge both them and herself. Elizabeth enjoys performing in opera, oratorio, and recital, particularly when she has the opportunity to work on innovative and interdisciplinary productions. Her first love as a solo singer was and is art song, as she has a real passion for poetry and foreign language study. She also welcomes students of all levels and backgrounds to her studio, and centres lessons around their goals – anything from pursuing music as a career or rehabilitating a voice, to being able to sing in-tune. Her mantra as a voice teacher is: “Anyone can sing!”
In recent years, Dan Luong has been enriching the musical scene of London, Ontario in a variety of ways: pop-up concerts held at Redeemer Evangelical Lutheran Church where he is the Music and Choir Director, working at the Don Wright Faculty of Music as a Collaborative Pianist, and as well, providing students and recent graduates with performance opportunities off-campus. Dan also maintains a busy teaching schedule working with students of all ages, even across borders and time zones via Zoom.
As a passionate performer, Dan competed internationally and performed in the U.S., Italy, Israel, and Japan. He was a member of the 2020 and 2021 Canadian National Youth Orchestra and was prepared to tour Canada and Europe, which was canceled due to COVID-19.
Dan earned both his Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in Music Performance from Western University, where he studied with Prof. John-Paul Bracey, Dr. Brett Kingsbury, and Dr. John Hess. He’s won numerous prizes and scholarships during this time, including the Maritsa Brookes Concerto Competition, Michael Geryk Memorial Competition, and the Fred Pattison Piano Competition. As a prizewinner of these competitions, Dan performed solo recitals and concertos with the Western University Symphony Orchestra and the Cathedral Bluffs Symphony Orchestra. Dan has also performed with the London Symphonia and the London Youth Symphony Orchestra as a guest artist.
During the pandemic when many gigs and competitions were canceled, Dan developed new skills in videography and audio recording.
