Fowler Center Director

Marika Kyriakos

Though the role of Fowler Center director is new for Marika Kyriakos, she is no stranger to A-State. Kyriakos joined the music faculty in 2008 as coordinator of voice and director of the A-State Opera Theatre. In addition to coordinating Fowler Center, Kyriakos will also preside over the Fowler Center Performing Arts Series. Along with this appointment, Kyriakos serves as assistant dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Communication. Prior to these new positions, she was chair of the Music Department for five years. Both a singer and pianist, Kyriakos completed her Doctor of Musical Arts Degree in Vocal Performance at the University of Texas. Still fulfilling teaching responsibilities as Professor of Voice, Kyriakos works diligently to enable her students the opportunity to study and perform abroad. Finding her own international endeavors to be invaluable, she enjoys taking her students on these essential foreign excursions. Similarly, Kyriakos is eager to bring diverse cultural opportunities through vibrant performances to A-State and the Delta Region at Fowler Center.
