All I know is this: Dr. Pomfrett will be on campus next week to take care of a few things.
There is some talk about setting up auditions soon so that Dr. Pomfrett will know what she has to work with and select an appropriate work. In case you don't know, that is probably the most difficult decision to make . . . choosing the work.
Know this too: the committee that interviewed prospective candidates for the voice-opera position are very pleased with the selection of Dr. Pomfrett. She has excellent ideas, a wonderful personality, and an incredible ability to teach.
Rest easy, opera lovers. You are in good hands.
