Currently, Driskell said, "Dr. Rowell maintains a very active performing schedule as a recitalist, soloist (and performing) roles with regional opera companies" (and) "in addition to his teaching and performing, he serves as conductor of Bella Voce of Mobile, Mobile's premier women's chorus."
Of Light in the Piazza, Driskell said that it is "set apart from the 21st Century tradition of pop music on Broadway . . . the melodic structure is very evocative of what is happening on the stage. CCT will again offer an extended, six-piece orchestra for this musical, drawing from among Mobile's leading musicians to fill the pit." Maestro Scott Wright conducts and Daniel Driskell serves as rehearsal accompanist and principal keyboardist.
