Dr. Jim Koch is back to talk about our region's economic state--this will be his 29th annual presentation for our club!  

James V. Koch was recruited from the University of Montana to become Old Dominion's sixth president. During his tenure at the University of Montana he was cited for his success in bringing several international programs to the university and for his success in dealing with the state legislature.

Under Dr. Koch's leadership, Old Dominion's first capital campaign exceeded its goal netting over $50 million in contributions. During Dr. Koch's tenure, Old Dominion's annual contracts, grants, and strategic alliances with regional organizations grew. Between these regional and other efforts, Old Dominion University created more jobs than any other school in the state, and added millions of dollars to the Hampton Roads economy.

Included on President Koch's list of accomplishments that made him most proud are: improvements in the appearance of the campus, the development of The Village, starting the TELETECHNET distance learning program, and increasing diversity on campus.

After leaving the presidency, Dr. Koch took a year sabbatical and returned to Old Dominion in 2002 to teach Economics.

This is Robert Shoup’s 20th season as Chorus Master and Staff Conductor of the Virginia Symphony Orchestra. His national and international conducting credits include the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, Breckenridge Music Festival Orchestra, ensembles from the Prague Radio Orchestra and Czech State Philharmonic, and numerous choral ensembles. He served as the Music Director of the all professional Virginia Chorale from 1997-2007.

Robert Shoup's choruses have been described by critics as "totally enthralling" and "completely mesmerizing," and he has spearheaded numerous collaborations that have included music, dance and visual arts. His ensembles have been featured on numerous recordings, including two discs with the VSO for the Naxos label (Hailstork and Stravinsky). He served as Assistant Music Director for the Virginia Symphony and Virginia Arts Festival's highly acclaimed production of the Leonard Bernstein "Mass" and coordinated the collaborating choruses for 2012 performances and recording of Mahler's Eighth symphony known as the "Symphony of a Thousand."

His achievements include the creation and coordination of "American Voices", a two-week-long festival of American choral music with the Virginia Chorale and the VSO. The project earned one of seven major National Endowment for the Arts "American Masterpieces: Choral Music" grants. Shoup also prepared a nationally recruited choir of over 1,800 singers for the 400th Anniversary celebration of Jamestown.

Mr. Shoup is also a singer whom the Pittsburgh Post Gazette called Shoup "an especially fine tenor." His vocal performances have included the role of John Adams in the world premiere performance of Adolphus Hailstork's Crispus Attucks, and Beethoven's Ninth Symphony with the Fort Collins (CO) Symphony. Mr. Shoup is the founding Artistic Director of CREATOrS, Inc., for which he is composing the score for a major theatrical project related to a true story in sub-Saharan Africa.

Shoup holds a Bachelor's degree in Music Education (voice) from Duquesne University, and a Master's degree in Conducting in the studio of Grammy-winning conductor Robert Page at Carnegie Mellon University.
