T. N. Retif - Vocal Coach
A native of New Orleans, T.N. Retif brings over 45 years of teaching experience to the position of Vocal Coach for the AGMC. Before teaching at the college/university level he sang professionally, notably an Apprentice Artist with the Santa Fe Opera Company, and was the soloist in the premiere performance of Norman Dello Joio's Song of Abelard, under the baton of the composer.
During and after completing three degrees in vocal performance and post-doctoral studies in musicology, Dr. Retif was a member of the music faculty at several institutions, including The University of Texas at Arlington, Hardin-Simmons University, and Brewton-Parker College, with a number of his students achieving professional singing careers. Dr. Retif is also a conductor, primarily in the handbell arena. While at BPC, he led the Baron Ringers to an international reputation, and has served the American Guild of English Handbell Ringers as Master Conductor at the organization's Directors' Seminar.

Brewton-Parker College Choir -, 10 Nov 2008 [cached]
In 1981, Dr. T.N. Retif joined our music faculty to teach voice. He also became the director of the Baron Ringers. For 17 years he led this group to a new level of excellence in the art of bell-ringing. The group always traveled with the choir, performing in every concert and toured extensively by itself. The tours were to the Bahamas, Canada, east and west coasts and across the Southern and Southeastern United States. The Baron Ringers were known as one of the finest in the land and they were always featured at festivals. After two years without a Handbell team, Dr. Retif resurrected the Handbell Choir in the Fall of 2001.
Dr. T.N. Retif served a year and a half as the Interim Chair of the Music Division until January 2003 when Dr. Glenn Eernisse became the new Chair.
