Dr. Moniz currently serves as Coordinator of Vocal Studies at Millikin University and Executive Director of Hawaii Performing Arts Festival. Prior to his appointment at Millikin, he was a member of the faculty at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music. A two-time winner of The American Prize in Vocal Performance, his "superb high tenor" (South Florida Classical Review) and "commanding stage presence" (TalkinBroadway.com) has been thrilling audiences in opera houses, theaters, and concert halls across the nation, among them Opera Grand Rapids, Utah Festival Opera & Musical Theatre, Sarasota Opera, Florida Grand Opera, the Opera Company of Middlebury, Opera New Jersey, DreamCatcher Theatre/Adrienne Arsht Center, Orchestra Miami, Gulfshore Opera, Palm Beach Dramaworks, the Orchestra of Northern New York, and Chicago Symphony Center. His unique style and versatility have afforded him an active career in opera, concert and musical theatre, having sung over 80 roles to date. Most recently, Moniz’s star turn as Prince Karl Franz in The Student Prince with Opera Grand Rapids received high praise and great acclaim, the press hailing his performance as "simply outstanding…glorious" (Encore Michigan). His performance also earned him the prestigious BroadwayWorld Award for Best Actor in a Musical. Moniz holds degrees from Florida State University, University of Miami, and SUNY Potsdam, as well as certificates from Harvard Business School and Duke University.
