Dr. Cara Tasher, associate professor and director of Choral Studies in the School of Music, teaches courses in Chorale and Chamber Singers, upper-level and graduate courses in conducting — practical, theoretical and academic — as well as some courses in the music education sequence when she is available.
Tasher's engagements as both a singer and a conductor have brought her to more than 20 countries for concerts, festivals and workshops or as a featured soloist. She has led the UNF choirs on numerous performance tours all over the world including Portugal, Italy and South Africa. International awareness is a focal point of her teaching, and she writes articles on living composers in the International Choral Bulletin. Tasher was awarded the UNF 2010 Outstanding Undergraduate Teaching Award.
