During the spring semester, Moniz has been invited to present masterclasses, lectures, and workshops to the vocal pedagogy programs at The Boston Conservatory at Berklee and New England Conservatory, as well as the vocal performance programs at Boston University and University of Miami.
Moniz recently presented an online vocal masterclass for CS Music. Classical Singer magazine began in 1988 as The New York Opera Newsletter. Interest in the newsletter grew rapidly and the demand for more information triggered the transformation into Classical Singer magazine. CS Music now offers renowned programs and competitions for singers of all levels nationwide.
Moniz was recently selected as the BOSS 2020 Featured Educator! During the upcoming festival, he will present three workshops including the festival’s capstone class. “Pop/Rock and Drop It” will explore efficient and sustainable chest-dominant (belt) production in contemporary popular styles.
Charles Bloom’s new musical, Pablo, will produce a fully orchestrated cast album this December at New York City’s Dubway Studios. Justin takes on the role of Luc Du Lac, the commercially successful and morally bankrupt chief artistic rival in Paris and the musical’s antagonist.
Justin recently made his role debut as Bobby in Company with Hawaii Performing Arts Festival.
“…Bobby finally comes into his own, stepping forward at first tentatively – almost tearfully conveying the anguish that comes with finally understanding that what he is missing… Then Justin’s expansive tenor rises to certainty: “Being Alive” is connection to someone else. Justin’s forte is rising to forte with passionate conviction.”
This fall, Justin begins an appointment as Associate Director of Vocal Pedagogy and Music Assistant Professor of Vocal Performance at New York University’s (NYU) Steinhardt School, where he will teach courses in pedagogical theory and practice, applied voice, and supervise the graduate vocal pedagogy program. Prior to joining the NYU faculty, he served as Chair of Vocal Studies at Millikin University and Visiting Instructor at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music.
Moniz earned great acclaim for his performance by Big Island Music Magazine in HPAF’s season opener!
“All three of the Hollywood Hits singers are professionals who have had leading roles in a variety of operas and musicals… Moniz himself, with his assured and commanding tenor and superb acting skills, kept us breathless as he held onto a final high note; we only let out our breaths when he did.”
For the second consecutive year, Justin was named winner of The American Prize in Vocal Performance in the Men’s Professional Art Song Division.
The American Prize in Vocal Performance—Friedrich and Virginia Schorr Memorial Award recognizes and rewards the best performances by classically trained vocalists in America in 2018-19, based on submitted recordings.
